Temari balls, a traditional Chinese folk art introduced to Japan in the 7th century, are gifts given to children by grandparents on New Year’s Day. The temari are fabric-wrapped wads of silk whose surface is then embroidered from the threads of old kimonos.

The above pictures are from the Flickr feed of NanaAkua and feature tamari made by her 88 year-old grandmother, who learned the art in her 60s.

Granny has made over 500 to date and they’re all here.
