Hina Dolls crafted by KAKINUMA TOKO (Traditional craftsman certified by Minister of Economy, Trade and Industory / Traditional craftsman certified by The Governor of Tokyo)
"Lucky Cat" has been loved by many Japanese people since the ancient times, as a good luck ornament that brings luck and prosperous business. The cats with their right paw up are said to bring in people(customeres).
Kimekomi is a technique of carving lines in a body made from solidified wood powder with starch, and inserting kimono fabric into the lines. The history of this Kimekomi doll dates back to the mid 18th century. ‘KIMEKOMI TRAY’ is combined with the same old technique. It is created in a two- dimensional way with added soft synthetic sheet so that it will have cushioned surface to hold your precious watches and jewelries, etc. The frame is lacquered in Aizu-nuri, one of the traditional artworks in the Aizu region in Fukushima.
