WHAT TO EXPECT

Tsumami Crafts Workshop Tsumami is a traditional technique to make petals, flowers, cranes, and etc. for Kanzashi (ornamental hairpins) to go with kimono and itself has long history about 200 years. Tsumami-Kanzashi is mainly used by young geisha called “Maiko”, or in special occasions such as “Shichigosan” (the seven-five-three festival), “Sejinshiki” (the coming of age ceremony), wedding and etc. Traditional Tsumami is made from small squares of silk called “Habutae”. By pinching and holding Habutae like an origami with tweezer, each figure is created.
