Collection: Annie Reid

Annie's love of Japan brought about her art passion. “We had visited Japan several times and I had seen the Temari, exquisitely embroidered material balls. Temari balls are a folk art form and Japanese craft, originating in China and introduced to Japan around the 7th century A.D. ‘Temari’ means ‘hand ball’ in Japanese. “The balls were used for play by young girls and then the mothers started embroidering them and they became an art form,” Annie says. Annie learnt how to make them and now displays and sells them.

Temari balls are a form of folk art that originated in China and were introduced to Japan in the 7th century. Originally, they were made from herbs and leather, and noblewomen of Japan developed theirs from silk and kimono scraps. The temari ball is a symbol that represents great loyalty or a valued friendship

Hishikazari -An Asian inspired ornament symbolising good luck and best wishes - the perfect gift.
