Purple and Yellow Obijime Bamboo-Handle Handbag


This pretty bag is made from a piece of faux bois patterned upholstery silk, with lining from a vintage obi in a happy yellow color. The bow detailing on the front is from a vintage obijime, and the handle is a piece of bent and laquered bamboo.
The handle is secured by screws to a pair of hinges, which are then sewn into the top band of the bag. the handle can be removed simply by unscrewing the screws, and the hinges will disappear inside the top of the bag.
The tension from the handle makes the bag very taut across the top, and with the handle in, it opens a max of about 4″ or so. If the handle is removed, it can open much wider, more like 6-7″. This bag closes with a small magnetic snap at the center of the top band.

measures ::
12″ at the base, 7.5″ at the opening, and 7.5″ tall, without the handle.
