Orishiki clutch bag is a striking origami inspired hand bag featuring intense angles, clean geometry and a futuristic style. A futuristic design that surprisingly has its original roots to the ancient art of folding paper. Orishiki clutch hand bag is an original design of London based Japanese designer Naoki Kawamoto.
“Orishiki” is a hybrid word composed by the Japanese word “Ori” taken from “Origami” the word used for the paper folding art and “Shiki” which is taken from the word “Furoshiki”. Furoshiki is a large piece of fabric used for wrapping and transporting goods, and can be also worn as a scarf. So, “Orishiki” clutch is a hand bag made of a two-dimensional single pieced structure divided in triangular segments. The segments fold together like origami and wrap things around just like furoshiki.
