Chako's spirit is in every bag, and each bag is as diverse and beautiful as the woman who carries them. Each clutch is individually designed and handcrafted from genuine silk obi & kimono fabrics and has a detachable chain that enables it to be worn in 3 ways: over the shoulder, on the wrist or as a clutch. Chako bags are also designed so that they maximize every inch of useable fabric.
