Unique and original hair accessory.

This kanzashi is decorated with picture of bamboo plant, which in Japan is a symbol of strength (as it grows straight towards the sky) and flexibility. The delicate bamboo plant bends beneath the weight of winter snow but does not break. Also, bamboo has been loved as a symbol of long life since ancient times because it keeps green grasses even in winter.
Wonderfully ornamented Kanzashi style hair comb with traditional lacquered traditional pattern.
Comb’s teeth have enough length (7~8cm) to hold even thick hairdo.
This beautiful vintage style Japanese hair comb is the type called "Kanzashi." This is a kind of umbrella term used for a number of different types of hair accessory.
Such ornaments represent a link with traditional forms in Japanese hair accessories, which have been used for hundreds of years before Western styles began to overtake traditional forms.
The styling of this striking comb is typical of Japanese design.
Material: Acrylic resin.
Size (Cm): Length: 13; Width: 8.5
Please note: Details and colors of the images might be slightly different from the actual product. As it is hand made, small imperfections are common in the lacquer work on kanzashi in this quality range.
