*A netsuke is a hand crafted, large bead or a small sculpture used in the Japanese wardrobe. They may be carved from bone, ivory, coral, wood.
The netsuke is used to stop the cord from slipping through a japanese obi sash. This small toggle was attached to prevent slipping. The toggle is called a netsuke. (The most popular pronunciation is "net-ski", while the actual Japanese is closer to "netskeh"). A sliding bead (ojime) was strung on the cord between the netsuke and the sagemono to tighten or loosen the opening of the sagemono.
