Travelers’ Treasures / Origami Jewel Mizukuruma (12 kinds of pierced earrings)

Mino handmade washi, created and cultivated in the scenic beauty of Gifu Prefecture, is washi that combines both thin and tough qualities, and is known even in Japan for its triumph of high quality.

This Mino Washi, from the selection of materials to completion, is made from techniques carefully handed down over time, and has been registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2014. The world-renowned Mino Washi was used to create this pierced earrings masterpiece. Lasers have been used to cut patterns in detail, and it has excellent structural beauty from being carefully hand-folded point-by-point with the skill of origami. As expected of washi, it is extremely light, and is strong due to being coated with resin.

The area around the wearer’s ears will be beautiful thanks to the transparency distinctive to such a gentle material as washi, and the appearance of light softly seeping through.
