I fell in love with this simple, but bright and elegant color trio that honors one of my favorite figures, that of the butterfly Chô 蝶. The butterfly is one of the most auspicious motifs in the world of kimono. The circle Maru 丸, a symbol of harmony Wa 和, is one of the oldest and most prestigious Japanese motifs. To echo this round shape that surrounds it, Chô, seen from above, spreads its wings adorned with dots in a circular movement. This prestigious figure bears the name of Kochô, the butterfly with outstretched wings seen from above.


In the background, another equally august animal motif, Kikkô 亀甲, the scales on the back of the turtle, a symbol of good fortune and longevity. On the scales, we can see four small squares... Could they be a very graphic variation of the Hanabishi 花菱 pattern, the water chestnut, very often associated with kikkô and rather drawn by diamonds echoing the shape of its leaves? Maybe maybe … To enhance the soft blue of this stunning vintage obi sash, I added to it a touch of bright orange, also cut into a vintage obi sash.

If you think this is a little too much, think again! Imagine yourself dressed simply in a white T-shirt, jeans, a small plain jacket, and presto, with your bag, you will have the strong piece you need to upgrade your outfit, give it more style in an inimitable way in the blink of an eye! Isn’t that great ?


And moreover, this bag is very practical because it has 4 inside pockets! You can put everything you need in it that you will want to take with you when you choose to take your kimono bag on your outings.


Even if this bag is made of fabric, it has been reinforced to give it a beautiful shape, a body very present and consistent.
