Antique Kimono Silk Fabric Clutch

The fabric used for the exterior of this stunning, one of a kind evening clutch was taken from an antique high end silk kimono. The kimono was a stunning example of hand embroidery work and I had it in my personal archives for years. The central medallion of flowers that adorned the back panel of the robe was used for one side of the bag. The other side of the clutch is taken from the hand dyed silk panel that made up the inside hem of the original piece. Onto that side, beautiful hand made silk ribbon was removed from the kimono's interior edge and re-sewn by Marketa, by hand onto the bag. Inside the hand-embroidered banding that circled each cuff has been transformed into stunning pockets.

There was only enough salvageable fabric from the original antique garment to make this one, single clutch. It is truly a one of a kind and a very special piece! Each bag is made entirely by hand through the collaborative efforts of Shrimpton & Marketa

14" wide x 8" tall folded, 12" tall unfolded, with black cotton twill lining and an interior hand embroidered antique fabric slip pocket
