Kanzashi are Japanese hair ornaments. Hana kanzashi means ‘flower kanzashi’ and simply refers to the flower shape of the hair accessories. Tsumami kanzashi means kanzashi that are made by pinching silk to form petals and is the Japanese traditional craft which inspires my own kanzashi.

Caring for your kanzashi:

My kanzashi are make from silk and delicate materials. They should not become damaged during normal wear, but take care with them, as you would with any soft and delicate item- they will get squashed if you sit on them!

Keep kanzashi away from rain and water.

Please transport your kanzashi in the box it comes with, or it may become misshapen.

If your kanzashi does suffer a misshap you can 'plump' the petals by pushing the point of the petal towards the centre of the flower.

Please message me if you want more detailed advice on caring for your kanzashi!
