An antique (C. 1950) Japanese brocade wallet with a floral karakusa pattern on a pink background. Large enough to hold tissues, a face mask or other small items.

A slim wallet covered with brocade silk (kinran) with a woven karakusa floral pattern. The brocade pattern is arranged slightly differently on each wallet. This bag has a plain purple interior with a separate interior pocket and is fastened with a simple flat plastic toggle. This is an unused, deadstock item originally made to hold prayer beads.

Karakusa (literally a foreign or winding plant) is an ancient arabesque pattern brought to Japan from the middle east and is comprised of spirals influenced by vines and other natural forms.
