Shop Announcement:

My shop is now open despite the pandemic. I will endeavour to post within 24 hours, but items may still take a long time to reach you due to the pressure under which the Post Office is working.
Actual colours may vary. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently. Therefore I cannot guarantee that the colour you see accurately portrays the true colour of the product.

Turquoise Kanzashi Headband

Turquoise Kanzashi Headband
£3.50 1 Available
Love this


Kanzashi is a lovely Japanese art form, rather like origami, but done with fabric, generally silk. I have adapted it somewhat to make flowers from other fabrics, in this case crystal organza, which I attach to stretchy headbands. Instead of stitching the flower to the band, this time I have pinned it, so the Kanzashi can be used on other items, such as a handbag, hat or coat. The headband is bright turquoise, the flower is white, and there is a flat turquoise glass bead in the centre. The headband is 3" wide, 16" un-stretched and up to 22" stretched.


I discovered Kanzashi on the internet some years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed using my cotton scraps left from making pinnies to create flowers. Wondering what to do with the results I settled on headbands, hairbands and hair slides. I have sold many at Craft Fairs. I thought I'd see what happens on Folksy!
