About this change purse :
The fabric used to make this case is the one of a silk kimono that we have transformed. A kimono is a traditional Japanese garment in which each piece is unique as it is all handmade. When purchased new, a kimono can cost several thousand of euros. Nowadays, people are unfortunately wearing less and less kimono for different reasons as the difficulty of putting it on by yourself and the lack of opportunity to wear it. Now, it is usually worn for weddings, for official ceremonies or to attend cultural and artistic performances (theatre, floral arrangement, tea ceremony, etc.). At Monoya Tokyo, we want to give a second life to these kimonos and more generally to these traditional fabrics. They are now slightly neglected by Japanese people and that’s unfortunate as the refinement and quality of these fabrics are incredible.
Cautionary notes :
We use high quality fabrics to make our creations and we take care to use only textiles whose general condition is very good; however it may happen that marks of time are present on these fabrics which are several decades old, witnesses of their past histories. Please keep this in mind before ordering.
