A vintage kinchaku bag, lined with cotton, with wonderful figures motif, made of chirimen (crepe) silk, has made of 'kiribame' (patchwork) technique.

Silk patchwork bag*

Japan, Edo (18th century), 50x34 cm.



Recycling old discarded fabrics has always been a tradition in Japan. This has much to do with Buddhism and its ethic. To put it in contemporary terms, we could say Japanese were ‘ante litteram’ already thinking in terms of zero-emission processes… Whatever the trend or the press, though, here we have a patchwork bag made of exquisite silk fabrics with colours and designs typical of 18th century productions. Lined with hand-spun and hand-woven cottons, this is truly a very lovely object in almost mint condition (a sign it had been used only in certain occasions and cherished all this time since). Enjoy the different views it has to offer, including the lgreat black silk with flower heads put on the bottom of bag!  Absolutely charming.
