A handmade wash bag made from vintage kimono fabrics.
These wash bags are made by Studio Kimono using recycled vintage kimonos which are collected in Kyoto, Japan. Each one is unique in its design and finish.
After living over a decade away from Japan, the designers of this item (Mie Tanaka and Miyoko Aoki) see kimono textile in a new light and are moved by its beauty, but they also felt uneasy about modernisation continually breaking down tradition in Japan and people hardly wearing Kimonos day to day anymore. They therefore decided to make garments and accessories using them and to collect vintage kimonos in Kyoto, formerly the imperial capital of Japan.
The bag measures 20cm by 9cm.
