Nobori Tote - Plum -
This stylishly versatile, one-of-a-kind tote is made of vintage “nobori" or Japanese fabric banner. The exceptional banner is roughly 50 to 100 years old. It's original use is unknown but like most nobori it may have been used at a store front, a festival or other seasonal event.
We selected the part with the “kamon” (family crest) to make a market tote perfect for daily use. This kamon is called “Mokkou” (木瓜) and it features the outlined image of a bird's nest holding eggs or sliced melon.
Hand-sewn in Brooklyn, NY with vintage textile from Japan.
H38 x W47 x D14cm / H15 x W18.5 x D5.5 inches
