cute "osaifu" from Hokkaido
This small "osaifu", or coin purse belongs to my mom.
I think it's sooooooooooo cute.
Mom got it from nanny more than 20 yrs ago!!
It's from Hokkaido, the North island of Japan.
It's hand embroidered by Aynu people, who are the native inhabitant there. Really beautiful work!
You see small black creature besides the purse?
It's Himalayan black bear in Hokkaido.
