All temari items in shop on clearance!

These two temari are each 2.5 inches (6.5 cm) in diameter, wrapped in rich olive green and black threads and hand-embroidered with complimenting moss and olive greens and black pearl cotton embroidery threads. This listing is for the pair of temari, which are lovely to group together to bring a fantastic design element and conversation piece to your home or office.

Temari is the ancient Japanese folk art of silk embroidered thread balls, originally made by noble women from silken threads pulled from old kimonos. Used originally hundreds of years ago for child's play, today the art of temari is becoming more regarded around the world.

I am passionate about bringing together modern color schemes, unique designs, and precise stitching details into my art. I hand-wrap each ball first with yarn, then thread, then stitch my own modern version of the traditional Japanese designs with silky cotton embroidery threads.

Please note: I can attach a hanging thread if you desire one as these are lightweight ornaments, otherwise this is a unique art piece to display on a candle holder, tucked in a basket, or with a group of other temari.

Shipped first class in a unique gift basket along with a brief history of the craft.

Size: 2.5" (6.35 cm)
Weight: 1 oz. each
