Hair & Kimono Accessories

Japanese people did not wear jewelry, but instead created beautiful hair combs and hairpins which are about much more than just styling hair. Some 400 years ago, Japan created elegantly beautiful accessories that became works of art. Japanese kushi, (combs), and kanzashi, (hairpin), became expressions of character, social class, religion and an important part of Japanese fashion for both women and men.
