Small Homemade Fukusa

Regular price $38.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Fukusa are rarely used now for gift giving but were traditionally draped over gifts during formal ceremonies. This small fukusa seems to have been homemade from a chirimen silk crepe furoshiki and kimono lining silk.  (The red is  redder and less orange than it looks in the photos).   The kamon family crest is a 'mokko'  motif.  This is a common kamon with a long and not very clear history and meaning. It could be a quince blossom  - or the cross section  of a cucumber! 44cm x 45 cm. Early 20th century

Price includes GST and regular postage within Australia
