The Daruma, a round doll without arms or legs, is traditionally made out of papier-mache and painted red with the kanji for "luck" on its generous belly. It is a representation of Bodhidharma, an Indian sage and the founder of Zen Buddhism, who is said to have lost the use of his limbs after meditating in a cave for nine years. As the doll will right itself when knocked over it symbolizes overcoming misfortunes and demonstrates the saying "fall down seven times, get up eight." The doll also represents the single-mindedness oto achieve a goal.

This panel was designed by Keiji Kawakami, the owner of Fujiya in Asakusa, Japan. Kawakami has been designing decorative tenugui (kazari) since 1955. Not only is he famous for his own original dyed designs, but also for reviving classic motifs dating back to the 18th century. He only adds about a dozen new designs a year to his collection and tenugui-lovers flock to his shop to purchase them seasonally.

Originally $50.00 now $40.00

This Japanese inspired quilted wall hanging is individually hand crafted by myself--not mass produced. Each panel is unique with the choices of coordinating fabrics used to frame each piece. 80% of all my fabrics come from Japan. These wall hangings bring a unique and refreshing change from the usual Japanese scroll, poster or art work.

For followers of feng shui, serene scenes bring good chi to one’s home.

This is a Small Size Wall Hanging: 18 inches wide by 29 1/2 inches high including tabs. This measurement is the actual width of the wall hanging itself—does not include the rod measurement which extends slightly past the tabs or the cord it hangs from. Natural bamboo rod and cord are included and wall hanging is ready to hang.

This is a hand-guided, machine-quilted, fabric-framed printed or silk screened solid panel(tenugui)— front panel is not individually pieced. The special way the individual layers of polyester/and or cotton batting are combined, brings out depth and dimension to these specially selected panels.

Daruma in bright red, white, black and yellow gold on a yellow gold background. Black traditional kasuri woven-look patterned border. Not the right design for you?

Shipping costs listed are best ESTIMATES. Wall hangings must ship Priority Mail insured. I refuse to have my customers pay more than they need to for shipping. Shipping cost many times can be reduced considerably by not including the bamboo rod and/or combining your wall hanging with other purchases. Please CONVO me before paying for your item(s) so that I can give you the lowest shipping costs I can. I will then adjust the listing and relist it as reserved for you to purchase.
