Striking bright orange in metallic blue, yellow and gold Paulownia floral brocade, upcycled from a vintage silk obi belt, 

Paulownia is known in Japanese as ‘kiri’ and as ‘Princess Tree’ because it was once customary to plant a tree of this kind when a baby girl was born, and then to make it into a dresser as a wedding present when she married.

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.

This beautiful clutch comes with a silver or black chain shoulder strap, so you can wear it any way you like.  Choose either 60cm or 120cm please make a note of which one you would prefer at checkout.
