This one-of-a-kind, whimsical silk pin is made with Chirimen, (crepe), made from rescued and repurposed vintage silk fabrics is of a reclining baby, (tench), with outstretched arms which is of a traditional subject. This unique Brooch was created and crafted by a 90 year old Japanese woman whose parents were Kimono makers. She focused and learned how to make other decorative items such as miniature Kimono, and silk brooches, all hand made and hand stitched from small scaled patterned silks to compliment her designs.

The skillful use of the subject and fabrication technique gives this Takayama artist’s work a refined quality, transforming woven material into expressive three-dimensional shapes.
