Cherry and Plum blossoms

福梅Tsumami is a Japanese traditional craft skill.
Tsumami uses a square fabric of silk, folding it a few times, and forms a petal.

I use silk Kimono, particularly Kimono nobody wears any more, but still has its own beauty preserved.

Tsumami accessories are mainly used by head decorations of the Maiko (Geisya), and hair accessories for special occasions, such as the coming of age day.

In modern Japan, these are rare opportunities... so I was searching for more opportunities that poeple can enjoy this beautiful pieces - for instance, even when people are wearing jeans - by making more casual accessories.

This Kanzashi is for special occasion, mostly used with long sleeve Kimono (Furisode) for parties and family gatherings.
