Vintage Japanese Katazome

310.00

This beautiful little bag is really special. It’s made from vintage Japanese katazome fabric. Katazome is a resist technique that uses rice paste to create resistance against the rich hand-dye. leaving behind a beautiful reversed out print. This particular pattern is a very traditional kiku, or chrysanthemum, pattern and it’s really lovely. The front of the bag has been lovingly hand-patched with two other gorgeous vintage indigo pieces, making it truly one-of-a-kind . The bottom reinforcement and back snap patch pocket are made from a rich chocolate veg-tanned leather that has been extensively hand-processed to create a lived-in look and feel that pairs beautifully with the vintage fabric. The tote handles and fully adjustable, removable crossbody strap are made from chocolate hand-cut + finished belting leather that will soften and patina with wear. The top has a hidden snap closure to keep everything safely inside. The inside is fully lined with natural linen and has two additional pockets to keep organized. Our signature cross detail is hand-embroidered on the back pocket. A slender handmade tassel with unique ceramic, wood and brass beads finishes off this really special bag.
