When it comes to kanzashi flower (artificial hairpin with ornamental flowers), many people might think of maiko. The ornamental hairpins worn by maiko are created with seasonal flowers as a motif; they are gorgeous and impressive! The colorful world of flowers is expressed using tsumami zaiku (the technique of pinching small and square-cut pieces of cloth to produce a shape of a flower), the traditional handicraft technique since the Edo period (1603-).
At “Deko Boko An” located in Sakyo Ward, Kyoto, you can experience of making kanzashi (ornamental hairpin) or a brooch with the technique used for kanzashi flower of maiko!! Accessories created with colorful cloths are filled with the sense of the seasons and beauty unique to Japan, and they will surely make you want to create one after another! Apparently, there are many guys visiting for this experience these days, to create a present for his wife, girlfriend or mom…♪
