Antique Temari

Written on September 18, 2008

Temari are decorative balls of  wound and stitched threads.  In olden times in Japan temari were created from leftover threads and were intended to give to children: in some cases within the core of a temari would be a wish for the child in the form of a crumpled note, or a bell–the bell lending a playful aspect to this wondrous thing which was intended to amuse a child.  These particular ones, I think, are beautiful for their faded colors and abstract geometric patterns.

And today, our “for sale” website, Sri, is updated with new products, so have a look!
