About Contemporary Purses

About Contemporary Purses

Each Contemporary style purse has been expertly handcrafted (repurposed) from a vintage Japanese obi and features a gold or silver hinged metal frame with sculptural tabs that snap the purse shut.  Each measures approximately 9” x 5” x 2”. 

A Contemporary purse can be used as a clutch or, with the appropriate chain or strap, over-the-wrist (chain included), on-the-shoulder, or cross-body. The hardware to attach a chain folds out of sight when the purse is used as a clutch.  You can also upgrade with an elegant Kumihimo wrist chain.

Note: Due to the unique nature of vintage materials, the pattern on the purse you order may vary from the one shown. If you like to be surprised, simply add your choice to your cart, but if you would like to view available pattern variations, contact us and tell us which model (i. e. "White Clutch C002") you are interested in.  We'll get back to you with a photo of what we have.

(The purse shown above with typical contents is a "Red & White Flowers II" model M008.)
