This beautiful hair stick set are hand-crafted by me from chirimen fabric
using Tsumami Kanzashi technique.
This is the Kanzashi-type (Japanese hair stick)
that can be particularly use for coming-of -age ceremony
and shichi-go-san (festival for children of three, five and seven years of age) in Japan.
But of course,you can put it casually.
It’s gorgeous and glorious so maiko (an apprentice geisha) also wears such Japanese hair stick.
The hanging in silver color is called ‘Gin-bira’ which is used for Japanese stick a lot.
One hair stick and two small combs comes in one set.
that was developed in the late 16th century
and became popular nationwide in the EDO period (about the 17th century).
This unique Chirimen feature,uneven texture,wrinkles(what we call "SHIBO") are
created by alternating two types thread,twisted in different directions,by turns in the weft. It's breathtaking beauty!
WHAT is TSUMAMI KANZASHI(つまみ細工)
The Kanzashi flower is skillfully made without needle and thread.
The technique, we call it 'Tsumami zaiku' in Japanese.
