Purple shibori floral kanzashi hair clip


This listing is for one hair clip.

*Tsumami kanzashi translates to "folded fabric hair ornament". In this Japanese technique, small squares of fabric are folded to create beautiful accessories. I use vintage kimono fabrics to create these pieces, giving the fabric a new use and new life when it may have been unable to be used for kimono or larger accessories. I personally starch, cut and fold all the silk used for my kanzashi. *

This beautiful hair clip would make a wonderful accessory for anymcelebration. This flower was created with 4 pieces of deep purple and pink shibori (tie dye) silk, 4 pieces of deep purple silk and 4 pieces of bright green colored silk. A creme colored, faux pearl was used for the center of the flower.

The flower is made in the tradition of Tsumami kanzashi but is also sewn together making this clip less prone to damage. The silk petals are glued onto felt and mounted onto a silver colored, metal hair clip (alligator style hair clip).

The flower is about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. The metal hair clip is about 1 3/4 inch (4.5cm) long.

This is the actual clip available for purchase.

The hair clip will come in a clear box that is perfect for gifting.
