Based on the art of vernacular weaving, these figurines are made of rice straws only including the yarn used for binding.
In the East Asiasn cultures, crane symbolises longevity. This item is a traditional lucky charm, wishing for health, safety and long life.
They would make a lovely gift to send someone special who is living afar.
A straw yarn loop is attached to hang on the wall.
The figurines are tightly woven and would actually enjoy very long life if treated gently on the wall - that is their habitat - and they do look best there.
Free gift wrapping (Japanese paper + paper yarn) available with this item.
