This handbag  is part  of The Asian Collection, a collection so named as the fabrics are all from Antique Japanese Silk Kimonos. This handbag is made from an embroidered Kimono using a silvery white thread for the Rose on the front and silver and white threads for the leaves on the back view. The detailing of the embroidery is unbelievable and only truly appreciated in person. The fabric is the traditional black Kimono crepe, and fortified using a very strong interfacing. The interfacing gives the bags strength and keeps its shape. The interior lining is white silk duppioni, and has a credit card pocket embroidered with its name and number.  The feathers are black coque rooster species. The handle is a lovely Turkish braid. The tie is made from a sturdy silk grosgrain. Pearls for feet top this spectacular ONE OF A KIND dream boat!

The bags dimensions are 7 3/4” (20 cm) wide x 4” (10 cm) deep x overall height is 8-9” (20-25 cm)

Cleaning Instructions: As this is silk spot cleaning by a very good dry cleaner is suggested. While not in use the bag should have the acid free tissue stuffing replaced in it to keep its shape, and kept in the clear plastic bag to keep dust off it.

This is a one of a kind item.

Blanc et Noir sells for $375.00.
