‘tsumami-zaiku’ is a kind of Japanese traditional craft. The method of production is to pinch the fabrics with tweezers, and fold the fabrics into shape without using needles or threads. The name Tsumami is derived from this process.
This is the technique used to make Kanzashi, a Japanese hairpin.
Tsuyutsuki makes necklaces, corsages and hair pieces using cotton and linen instead of silk. Her concept is ‘tsumami-saiku suitable for daily wear’.
The above photo is her major masterpiece, a natural corsage.
‘I intend to choose chic colors which mature women can use. This is one of them. I use various shades of pink.’(Tsuyutsuki)
She sent several photos so let’s introduce them one by one.
