Fabric Flower Accessories
These are tsumami zaiku, a traditional Japanese craft. Entirely unique to Japan and originating centuries ago in the Edo period, it involves the pinching and folding of delicate fabric into beautiful shapes.
Combining the art of tsumami zaiku with the practicality of hair accessories is the tsumami kanzashi. Characteristically adorning the elaborate hairstyles of geisha and maiko, tsumami kanzashi continued to make its presence and heritage vibrancy known in modern society as part of the modern woman’s fashion.
for all ages!
Tsumami kanzashi are, in a nutshell, traditional hair accessories that employ crafting techniques unique to Japan.
