Kanzashi have been used to adorn the hair of Japanese women throughout the ages. These ornamental hairpins are still considered a form of art and are crafted with pride even today, even though Japanese women wear traditional kimono less than ever before.
Our sister site YouPouch recently featured the incredible work of kanzashi artist Sakae, who uses flower blossoms and butterflies as the main motif of her work. We think you’ll agree that each piece is a work of beauty caught in time, so check the gallery below and be prepared to have your breath taken away.
