Japanese Textile Baguettes


This capsule collection consists of 25 Baguette handbags - each handcrafted from vintage Japanese kimono textiles sourced from Japan.


Japanese textiles have historically developed through an interaction of external influences & indigenous techniques and design choices, and a tendency to develop both technology & aesthetics to a high degree of refinement.


A vintage obijime, a braided cord belt used to tie kimonos closed, is included with each bag.
