This clutch bag has been made from a vintage obi sash belt (new product as a clutch).
Only a couples of clutches can be made from the same obi, depending on each vintage obi.
This clutch was made by a Japanese kimono seamstress based in Kyushu, a southern island of Japan. She hand-picks high-quality vintage obi to create the bags, meaning that each one is completely unique.
This type of clutch bags were originally called Sukiya bukuro in Japan. Sukiya bukuro are small purses in which accessories relating to the Japanese tea ceremony are kept. Usually, sukiya bukuro sizes are vary depending on their final use.
The same products were sold in the KIMONO: Kyoto to Catwalk exhibition shop in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in 2020. Furuki Yo-Kimono and the V&A buyers carefully selected the obi and custom ordered to SUKI. The Kimono exhibition finished, Clutches made from the same obi sashes are now available in our shop in London.
There are much more kimonos in our instagram or even more kimonos in my physical shop in East London.
