THE KIKKO SYMBOL
A Japanese symbol inspired by the shell of the tortoise in hexagons. The kikko brings longevity, luck and prosperity on the Explorer as she goes on her treasure hunting to earn her own keep.
The Japanese obi is a wide sash worn over the traditional Japanese kimono. We work with vintage and antique obi and often the sash we discover may no longer be deemed wearable as part of the traditional kimono attire. By giving the textile a new life and a new purpose, we hope to extend the appreciation and craftsmanship that were originally put in to make the woven textile. For our obi clutch collection, all materials from the entire obi is used. The ornate woven top side is used for the exterior of the clutch bag, while the silk lining of the obi (usually in solid color), is used in the lining of the clutch (subject to the status of the obi piece). Nothing goes to waste -- that is our motto in making these clutches.
Please note that although the materials are cut from the same obi, patterns and colors will be different for each clutches made. Each clutch bag will come with a numbered certificate and a beautiful eco friendly kraft paper box.
