Outline

The Koyomi Kokeshi Series is a set of 12 original kokeshi based on traditional ones and it expresses the calendar with symbol flowers of 12 month, things of seasons, etc. Kokeshi artisans make the bodies, and young creators incorporate new design that fits with current life in them. Kokeshi use to be a present to kids. Focusing on this fact, we make enjoyable design of combination of traditional kokeshi and current sense, so people joyfully send the kokeshi as presents. We produced “Hana Koyomi (flower calendar)” first and “Tabi Koyomi (travel calendar)” second to tap a new market for kokeshi.
