Warazaiku Takubo – Handwoven Straw Amulet – Wa-kazari


Warazaiku, a craft made of straw, was first mentioned in the genesis story of Japan compiled in 712. Tightly intertwined with agriculture and the Shinto religion, it was traditionally crafted by farmers with the byproduct of rice harvest. Made by coiling the straw between the palms of the craftspeople’s hands, prayers for good fortune are interwoven into the amulet.

輪飾り(Wakazari) – Translated to “circle ornament,” this is a simple wreath made of rice plant. It can be used as the base for making a more elaborate wreath.
