伊勢根付職人 梶浦明日香

​Netsuke artisanal Kajiura Asuka



 Netsuke are objects used as a fasteners for items hung from the sash (obi) of traditional outfits, suchas drawstring purses (kinchaku),

small cases (inro), and wallets (saifu). The history of netsuke dates back some 400 years. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand,

these fasteners combine the wonder of intricate carvings with pleasingly tactile form and witty design; their delight with their playfulness.

Netsuke become more valuable over time, as continued use gives them a rich, beautiful hue; they are miniature works of art that mature through the user’s touch.
