mottainai brass frame

55.00

Mottainai is a traditional phrase which means ‘waste nothing’. This concept is greatly valued in Japanese culture and the spirit of Mottainai is very important to us here at Ona Kimono. Over years of travelling to Japan we have salvaged tiny vintage fragments and antique scraps which are either too small or too delicate to be used for anything other than their beauty and colour.

Each brass frame contains a fragment of vintage kimono fabric preserved between two sheets of glass. The composition of each frame is carefully considered by the Ona Kimono team so that each frame is unique and individual.
