Stunning bright emerald green long strap bag, upcycled from two vintage silk obi belts.  Has an allover kikko hexagon design, which represents the tortoise and has symbolism of good fortune and longevity.  And a embroidered blossom mandala design in gold, orange and white.  The blossom, or sakura, is Japan’s national flower, and it represents hope and renewal. Since cherry trees only bloom for a short period in the spring, the beauty of the flowers also symbolizes the fleeting nature of life.

An obi () is a belt of varying size and shape worn with the kimono.  Originating as a simple thin belt the obi developed over time into a belt with a number of different varieties, with a number of different sizes and proportions, lengths, and methods of tying. The obi, which once did not differ significantly in appearance between men and women, also developed into a greater variety of styles for women than for men.
