This is a stunning clutch purse made from vintage obi belts. The main feature is the beautiful butterfly brocade with geometric floral and hexagon design. The butterfly has a spiritual significance to the Japanese people. Since caterpillars transform into butterflies and go through the cycle of birth, transformation, and death, many Japanese traditionally believe that the butterfly carries the souls of the dead or represent the souls of the dead. Measures at 28cm wide by 20cm in height. Has an optional chain strap.
