Why We Love It
Handcrafted in Kyoto by Tomoko Fujii of RITOFU, this elegant silk clutch showcases the technique of kyo-yuzen, a 17th century method of handpainting kimono fabric unique to Kyoto. In fact, kyo-yuzen is considered the most refined and intricate dyeing techniques; it is renowned across Japan for its luxuriousness and fine texture.
On the front panel of this kyo-yuzen silk clutch, the fine pattern of the genuine Japanese silk is visible through the handpainted design, adding a rich tapestry of texture. The four seasons of Japan are beautifully represented in the various shades of the zuiun pattern: an iridescent cloud formation, which has an auspicious meaning in Buddhism. On the reverse panel, a delicate floral pattern peeks through the solid color and can be seen from different angles and lighting.
Complementing the silk clutch is a detachable chain and invisible magnetic closure. Measuring 11” x 5.5” (28cm x 14 cm), this silk clutch comfortably holds all your daily essentials such as a smartphone, keys, wallet and cosmetics without being bulky. There is also a zipped interior compartment for added security.
Each bag is handmade from water-repellant silk kimono fabric, and can be worn on a variety of occasions. Wear it over your shoulder or detach the chain strap to carry it as a clutch. An artful blend of Japanese tradition and contemporary fashion; pair this versatile clutch with formal evening wear, casual attire, or even your kimono or yukata.
