Shoulder Bag – Red Kimono
Shoulder bag made entirely by hand from an old Japanese kimono that we recycled. The bag is rigid and can be held down because it has been lined and reinforced at the bottom. The shoulder strap is made from the same fabric and is adjustable. This kimono bag has several storage pockets, one on the outside and two smaller ones on the inside.
It took more than a full day of work to make this bag.

About this Japanese bag:
The fabric used for this bag is that of a silk kimono that we transformed. A kimono is a traditional Japanese garment and each piece is unique because it is handmade. When purchased new, a kimono costs several thousand euros. Nowadays, the kimono is unfortunately being lost, due to the difficulty to dress oneself and the lack of opportunity to wear it. Nowadays, one can wear a kimono for a wedding, for an official ceremony or to attend cultural and artistic performances (theater, flower arrangement, tea ceremony…).
With Monoya Tokyo, we wanted to give a second life to these kimonos and more widely to these traditional fabrics, which are a bit neglected by the Japanese but whose refinement and quality of fabric are incredible.
We use 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 history. Please keep this in mind before ordering.
Depending on the cut of the kimono, the selected part may not be exactly the same as the product picture. If there is a big difference, we will contact you by e-mail with a picture of the product and you can validate or not the order.
Washing is not recommended.
