My Latest Fiber Art Acquisition: A Vintage Japanese Silk Obi Purse

Look what arrived in my mail today! A purse made from a vintage Japanese silk obi. An obi is a kimono sash .

This fabulous purse was created by Tamami ko bag on Etsy. I was lurking at this shop for quite a while until her 20% off sale. Then, I struck and grabbed this exquisite purse. This purse is complete with a lovely zipper charm and a kimono tassel with beads. Talk about fiber art!

I love purses and I love this one!

Happy purse hunting!
