Biography

I make Tsumami zaiku flower accessories.

“Tsumami-zaiku” is one of the craft techniques originated in Japan to make fabric flowers.

“Tsumami-zaiku” is often known as “kanzashi” flower accessories as well.

“Kanzashi” is a traditional Japanese hair accessory that you wear with Kimono.
So, “Tsumami-zaiku” technique was developed to create beautiful kanzashi, which dates back to 200 years ago.

We don’t wear kimono everyday anymore, but we still wear it with kanzashi at special occasions such as at wedding or on New Year’s Day.
