  • PRODUCT INFOFor 1400 years, Japanese mothers made

    For 1400 years, Japanese mothers made temari for their children to play with from scraps of old kimonos. When the island of Japan began to import rubber, temari evolved into an art form. Today, temari starts with a cup of rice hulls packed inside a stocking, wrapped in yarn, then wrapped in thread and marked in a geometric pattern. Finally, the crafter stitches a pattern onto the ball using colorful embroidery threads. This process takes a few hours for a simple design, and may take several weeks for a complicated pattern. You can enjoy your temari as a centerpiece on a table or mantle, or group several together in a bowl or vase for an eye-catching display.
