Happy Easter Monday, Pom Pom pals! We love this holiday for the chocolates, pretty dyed eggs, and for it’s heralding of Spring! And speaking of Spring, in our latest issue, we feature the pastel-tastic world of Temaricious. Based in Japan (where beautiful cherry blossom trees are one of the world’s springiest symbols) the ladies behind Temaricious are spreading the word about the ancient art of Temari – balls of rice husk wrapped in hand-made paper and decorated with colourful embroidered patterns. You can read more about them in Issue 12 (in print or digitally).
We weren’t able to print all of the gorgeous pictures of their bright and colourful work, so we have decided to share a few more of them here. They make a rather more long-lasting spring accessory than dyed eggs no? Throw in some hand-dyed fiber-y goodness, and we’re hooked! Alognside the article about Temaricious’ founders, Naho and Rika, you can also get a full tutorial on how to make your very own Temari ball.
