*Please note that because the fabrics are delicate, the back side of all clutch purses and handbags are made in a plain vintage silk.  As the back part of any clutch or handbag may sit against your clothing, the plain unpatterned silk is more durable and very unlikely to frey or wear.  Any embroidered or delicate silk brocade would be more likely to get damaged if it was sitting against your clothing.  

An obi (帯) 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.

 

Koi Girl handbags and accessories are made from authentic vintage obi and kimonos sourced directly from Japan. Japanese kimono and obi have particular designs, motives and colours which have specific meanings to the Japanese culture, each clutch has ties back to its origin and carries a history, secret or story behind it. Koi Girl handbags and accessories are designed to show off the beauty, colour and feel of the garment it once was. These vintage fabrics are transformed into a useable, wearable one of a kind statement pieces.
