I've paired hand stamped Ginkgo leaves along with "Do small things with great LOVE" It's a match made in Japan!
This is a beautiful collaboration between myself and Jen at Mottainai Creations. Let me tell you a bit about Mottainai Creations: In Japan, "mottainai" means reuse, recycle, make what's old, new again. Jen sources the vintage kimonos straight from Japan, keeping them from making their way into landfills or rescuing them from second hand stores. She deconstructs the kimonos and turns them into, mainly, handmade scarves. These Kimono Wraps are the scraps from cutting the scarf pattern. Keeping with the true meaning of mottainai, nothing is wasted with these one-of-a-kind wrap bracelets.
Each one is adjustable to fit. Directions will be included for how to adjust it to your wrist size. The closure is a vintage or upcycled button and the metal is hand stamped aluminum. These can be customized, just send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is considered a custom order and non-returnable.
Hand stamped aluminum.
Vintage kimono fabric may show signs of wear and/or age. This is not a defect but adds to the charm and uniqueness of once being a treasured garment.
You will receive the exact piece shown in the first photo. Measures about 25" long but can be shortened to fit your wrist perfectly.
Al items are hand stamped by me in my studio in Newcastle, Australia. Depth of impression and alignment are what make your bracelet one-of-a-kind and is not a flaw.
