Tsumami Zaiku Kanzashi – Japanese style hair accessory
I made this hair accessory with Tsumami Zaiku. It would make a special gift for your friends, family or loved ones.
The floral fabrics that we handle are cut into squares and folded, so even the same fabrics have different colors.

About Sanae Floral Craft:
Tsumamizaiku is a traditional Japanese craft made from small, square-cut pieces of cloth (usually chirimen or cotton crepe raw fabric) that is delicately pinched and folded with tweezers. It originated over two hundred years ago during the Edo period in Japan.
There are two types of techniques:’Maru-Tsumami’ and ‘Ken-Tsumami’which are used to make patterns of flowers or birds. The most famous handicraft using this technique is ‘Kanzashi’, a hair accessory created to be worn and matched with a Kimono (traditional Japanese clothing / Maiko’s cloth). I am using this technique to create my floral craft and hair accessories.
