Takubo Straw amuret ornament "Wa-kazari"
This ring is to be hung as it is or used as the base of decoration to combine with other amulets. It draws from the basic continuous ring shape.
Shimenawa, straw amulets, made from rice straw by the Japanese Kai family, who have been growing and braiding rice straw into traditional objects of good fortune for generations. Based in the township of Takachiho, Miyazaki prefecture, an old, sacred ground, sometimes called a “mythic village”, each Shimenawa shape and knot type offers a different story, from guarding against evil to bearing good luck.
