In this lesson, you will learn how to make a Tamabara,
one of the tsumami zaiku rose.
The tama-bara is a tsumami zaiku technique, which refers to the rosebud. This time, we will make a retro kanzashi that looks great with hakama. “Hakama” is a traditional Japanese clothing, much like kimono. However, “Hakama” have pleated rousers,
instead of one long cloth like a kimono.
This kanzashi is a design that reminds of Taisho Romanticism (the culture of the early 1900s that blended the Japanese and Western worlds).
