Art Fiber Endo

Next time we are in Kyoto we will probably be on the lookout for this shop, Art Fiber Endo. We love the collaboration between this specialty materials store and Kutani Tsutsumi, a pottery manufacturer established in 1860.  The shop offers supplies for making your own thimble and bamboo string tassels.  The exquisite tassels incorporate a hanging thread from above, a Kutani thimble as a cap and a tufted yarn for the skirt.  They also create other versions of tassels which we are anxious to see up close.

You can find Art Fiber Endo on their website, Facebook and Minne, a Japanese handmade marketplace.
