Each one of these unique clutch bags is up-cycled from a vintage Jacquard silk obi belt, sourced in Kyoto, and handcrafted in an haute couture atelier in Reims, France. One of a limited edition collection of five numbered pieces, this design features a traditional hexagonal motif in regal gold, with accents of on-trend powder pink, acid green and silver-white on a background of golden poppy, with an orange silk lining.
The hexagonal ‘kikko’ motif, inspired by the pattern on the shell of a tortoise, represents longevity and good fortune. The hexagon also features in traditional samurai armour design.
Every clutch comes with a removable gold chain, fastened inside the pouch, to enable it to be worn as a shoulder bag. There is also a pocket inside for mobile phone storage. This bag is delivered in a Paulownia wood case, traditionally used in Japan to store obi and kimono.
Measures 3 x 26 x 16 cm – ideal for day or evening use.
