This cute little kusudama kanzashi is made from 64 hand-folded squares of polyester habutae that has been arranged into the flag of Japan. This kanzashi is very light so you do not have to worry about it pulling on your hair or slipping out while you are wearing it. I have worn a similar one for a whole day without incident.

*** Tsumami Kanzashi ***
Once the pursuit of the royal maidservants, "tsumami kanzashi" or "pinching hair accessories" have long been worn for centuries by Japanese women to decorate their ornament hairstyles. Nowadays they are mainly worn on special occasions or by artists called maiko and geiko.
Each petal is made from one square of fabric carefully folded using tweezers and then delicately arranged onto a base to create the flower of choice. Precision is key with this tsumami technique and many hours of practice (and patience) is required to be able to produce these flowers. Howwever once mastered, this technique offers the artisan the freedom to create unique flowers which are as charming as the real object which will never wither away.
