Based on the art of vernacular weaving, these figurines are traditional lucky charm, wishing for the health, safety and long life.
They would make a great gift to send someone special and living afar.
The ears of rice on the turtle back represent seewead, symbolising longevity of turtles.
These turtle 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.
They are made of Japanese rice straw only, including the yarn used for binding. Absolutely biodegradable.
A straw yarn loop is attached to hang on the wall.
Free gift wrapping (Japanese paper + paper yarn) available with this item.
