Daruma dolls are a great gift for celebrations and other occasions. A small sticker with a black eye is included so that the eye can be inserted, and instructions on how to do so are included in the package. The Daruma doll is made of luxurious yuzen fabric, making it a stylish item that can be easily displayed at home, in a store, office, or any other location.
Daruma Characteristic 1
Traditional crafts that are easy to incorporate into daily life
Daruma dolls are made using the kimekomi technique used for Hina dolls and other Sekku dolls. Kimekomi is a technique in which the body of the doll is cut out, glued into grooves carved into the body, and then covered with a cloth. Unlike mass-produced items, each Daruma is carefully crafted by hand by traditional artisans.
It may seem a bit intimidating to incorporate traditional crafts as objects or other figurines, but beautiful Daruma dolls fit in with any setting.
Daruma dolls, which are also good luck charms, should be chosen as "really good" items that can spend time together for a long time, both as gifts and for oneself. Just as Setsubuku dolls do not fade away after a long time, Daruma dolls will be an item that you can spend time with for a long time, even 10 or 20 years.
Daruma Characteristic 2
Beautiful coloring expressed in Yuzen
The fabric used to decorate the beckoning cat is yuzen dyed fabric, which is also used for kimonos. The pink-based fabric and blue-based fabric are exquisitely colored and arranged in a very gorgeous manner. Even the joints of the fabrics are elaborately finished in such a way that the patterns are connected, making the Daruma doll beautiful from all angles.
The face is also made of yuzen fabric, which gives the Daruma doll a very soft and gentle expression.
The small parts of the face, such as the eyes, nose, and mouth, as well as the body and bottom, are all firmly grained into the wood. Of course, even the bottom part, which you can't see, has been firmly grained into the fabric.
Daruma Characteristic 3
You can even put an eye in it! Great festive gift!
Daruma dolls are known as lucky charms that help make wishes come true, and are therefore chosen as gifts for various celebrations. Daruma dolls are said to have different meanings depending on their colors, such as red to ward off evil and ensure safety in the home, and gold to increase one's financial fortune.
Also included is a small sticker with a black eye so that the eye can be inserted. The instructions for eye placement are written in the manual, so there is no need to be confused. If you give this to someone who is trying something new, it will surely help them.
Daruma dolls with classic designs that have been made since ancient times are difficult to make use of as interior items, but this Daruma doll can be displayed in homes, stores, and offices without any sense of incongruity. We also recommend giving Daruma dolls as a set with other products.
Details of Daruma1
High stability! Coordinates well with other accessories.
Daruma dolls made with the Kimekomi technique look soft, but the base of the body is very sturdy. It is not fluffy like a doll with a light cotton-type weight, and does not roll or fall over when lightly touched. It has a high sense of stability and stands firmly on its own, making it easy to place anywhere.
You can also enjoy coordinating it with various interior items in your home. The modern Daruma doll is a great match for both Japanese and Western spaces.

Pleasantly sized for easy handling.
The Daruma doll is approximately 11.5 cm high, 10 cm wide, and 9.5 cm deep, and can be placed in the palm of your hand, so it can be displayed in a space-saving location such as the entrance, on a cabinet in the living room, or in a bay window.
It is nice not to have to worry about where to put it when purchasing it for home use or when choosing it as a gift for celebrations, etc.
Although a small item, the dignified appearance of the Daruma doll, carefully crafted by hand, will create a good presence wherever it is placed.
