Temari by Marcia Nehemiah ~ Temari or “embroidering the surface of a ball.”, is an ancient artform originating in China (8th century) & adopted by the Japanese (13th century). At first only the female servants of ladies in the Samuri class made temari, embroidering designs with silk thread on balled-up scraps of silk from old kimonos. By the 19th century, the craft spread & women made temari as toys for their daughters. In Japan, temari were used as charms & the designs had symbolic meaning.
