This is the very first time we are attempting a bird, and not just any bird, but the symbolic Japanese crane, an epitome of elegance.
The crane has been a popular motif for traditional ornamentation throughout the fashion history of Japan,
and to date, the folded paper crane seems to have taken over as a popular abstract motif in many contemporary designs.
To reminiscent and emphasize the beauty of the real crane, we created this work,
representing the bird in a posture as it glides and rides on winds,
which best features its signature tiny head on a long, slender neck on a rotund body, skinny legs with a majestic set of wings.
This item is no doubt a wonderful match for traditional Japanese kimono
but its traditional symbollic charm also works beautifully with contemporary fashion styles.
This item comes with a detachable hair comb.
