It can be hard to believe that these gorgeous pieces of art, called temari, were made by the hands of a 92 year old woman.

The art of temari making began in China and would later come to Japan in the 7th century. Traditionally made from remnants of old kimonos and given as toys, temari (meaning hand ball) would later evolve into a form of art in and of itself. Sewn by the hand of 92 year old grandmother from Japan, these temaris exhibit great skill work as well as beautiful colors and patterns.

Today, receiving a temari as a gift is something that is highly sought after and cherished. I certainly wouldn’t mind getting one of these gorgeous temari creations as a gift. Stats for Kaleidoscopic Stitched Hand Balls Trending: This Year & Hot
