ART / Looking for a new hobby? Try the traditional Japanese cloth craft of tsumami zaiku

Tsumami zaiku was developed during the Edo Period (1603-1868) as a way to enhance the beauty of kimono with hair ornaments that represented the traditional Japanese themes of natural seasonal beauty. Time-honored patterns included chrysanthemums, sakura blossoms, and cranes, but modern tsumami zaiku has a much more lenient design that includes objects like stars and roses.
