Product Description

There are two main types of Japanese traditional dance: Odori, which originated in the Edo period, and Mai, which originated in the western part of Japan.

A  variation of the Mai style of Japanese dance is the Kyomai or Kyoto-style dance. Kyomai developed in the 17th century Tokugawa cultural period. It is heavily influenced by the elegance and sophistication of the manners often associated with the Imperial Court in Kyoto.

Fans were also adapted for use as weapons and craftsmen discovered a way of taking the "pak dahl" wood, an extremely resilient birch tree that thrived in the ice storms and harsh seasons, and tempering it to a hardness that could resist the edged weapons typical of the era.

Handcrafted jewellery made in The Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, Great Britain. UK.
