January kanzashi are basically lucky charms, full of auspicious motifs to lure in luck for the coming year.
Fans are a symbol of prosperity, they symbolise widening of wealth. Gold colour is believed to attract wealth while red is considered to be lucky.
Motifs on fans also carry symbolic meaning: ume (plum blossoms) that are printed on a fan represent a new beginning. Bamboo is a symbol of strength, flexibility, and health
Each part of it is made by hand.
The main flower measure approx. 40mm. It is set on a silver-coloured double hairclip (brooch and hairclip).
~About my kanzashi~
Each kanzashi is made out of hand-folded petals, which are made from individual squares of high-quality fabrics. As with all items you see online, please be aware that due to your monitor settings colours may be displayed slightly differently.
Kanzashi should be kept it out of sunlight and dust, preferably in a jewellery box (if you own more than one kanzashi it's good to add a lavender sachet to the box). I do my best to make Wisteria Garden's kanzashi durable, but as with any delicate material, care should be taken when handling and storing your piece.
For Australia, Canada, and the USA please choose UPS for full tracking history.
