Chinese Embroidery Clutches (裙褂手袋)

The qun kwa (裙褂) is the traditional Chinese wedding dress popular in southern China. Auspicious motifs such as dragons and phoenixes are hand embroidered in gold and silver threads over a red fabric.  Over the past decades, western bridal fashion has greatly influenced the choices of young brides, thus the traditional kwa has fallen off from most bridal trousseau.  In Hong Kong, most brides now opt for a rental kwa.

This collection of clutch bag is made with end-of-use rental kwa salvaged from traditional wedding shops in Hong Kong, giving these intricate works of craftmanship a new purpose in the wardrobe of a woman with traditional heritage at heart.

Pieces in this collection are made to order, please contact us for pricing.
