Chigiri-e is the Japanese art form of paper collages with Washi paper. These images can either be abstract or realistic art forms. This art form can be frameable art, cards, and so many more modern crafts. This tradition can be traced back to the 8th century and is often still made by hand today.
Chirimen is the Japanese art form of hand-sewn charms with Kimono Fabric. The name Chirimen is for the fabric with crimps on the surface (often silk). This is commonly used in kimonos. This handicraft is often used to create hand-sewn pouches and ornaments.
This free flowing, hand-drawn art form is intuitive, fun, creative, and simple. Colorful Sumi ink and watercolor create meaningful drawings paired with thoughtful words to create messages to send as letters or keep for yourself. This handicraft is meant to be in the moment, where the artist draws what’s on their mind, how they are feeling, or something from their surroundings.
