Fans and Knots Leather and Obi Barrel Bag


This beautiful and unique bag is made out of a part of an antique (1930s/Showa Era) obi with Purple fans and Knotted Cords and a suite of leather pieces specially made for the bag. The bag is fully self-lined, as the construction method allowed for simply using the Obi as-is without deconstructing it at all. The leather pieces are soft sueded pieces and secured to the obi both with contact cement and hand-done stitching. The strap for this bag is 3/4″ by ~31″ end to end. There are no internal pockets in this bag. The leather surrounding the zipper is quite stiff right now, since the bag is unused, and will soften up with use.

Measurements ::10.5″ wide x 8″ tall x 8″ deep

the fabric is most definitely vintage, and is showing it’s age with several small stains and discolorations. i have tried to clean these, but since the piece is from the 1930s, these stains are set into the fabric. i can make these in custom colors or fabrics, so if there’s something custom you’re looking for, please let me know.
