About Japanese crafts

Is everybody has interest about Japanese traditional crafts? We have a lots of crafts which is clothes, home decor, interior, toy, pottery...and so on.
I found great web magazine it's all about Made in Japan.
It's called PingMag Make.
Very interesting!!

PingMag MAKE is the sister site to PingMag. We use an interview format to put the spotlight on a wide range of people active in rural areas. We document the voices of these unknown heroes and broadcast them to the world. It’s the Japan-based magazine about people and making things, coming out once a week. We’re passing on the passion, ideas, skills, and life stories of people who are building today and exploring tomorrow: craftsmen, engineers, entrepreneurs, and inventors. Stay tuned!

LOVE - mini canvas with easel

☆New in the shop☆

Love accumulates quietly in my mind like the leaf accumulates on the ground.

愛 meaning love.
I used two pink dots in the middle of "愛" which express the passion in the heart. "心"meaning heart or mind.
I wrapped the canvas with the kimono material and put a little piece of chirimen for the "love".

W 6cm x H 8cm

precious - ornament ball box

☆New in the shop☆

This craft idea from Japanese KIMEKOMI craft.
The history of kimekomi (pronounced kee may ko mee) dates back to the first half of the eighteenth century. Kimekomi originated with dolls. A wooden base was carved into and fabric was then used to decorate the doll-clothing, face, hair, etc.

Kimekomi means “tuck in” in Japanese. They also may be known as “quilt balls”

I made this with a chirimen material tucked into styrene form ball. I scooped out the inside for the box.

More about Kimekomi is here....
