The hime temari (princess' handball) is a traditional Japanese craft with an ancient origin. It has been passed down as handball of happiness in Ehime Prefecture from the past, and it was a favorite auspicious ornament in households for the new year. Furthermore, in a marriage, the bride would bring the ball to the new home as a symbol of happiness in creating a harmonious home. Today, it is used widely as a gift and souvenir as a temari, which brings happiness.
It is a very valuable item created by the traditional artisan from scratch.

Currently, Miyuki Tamura, the daughter of the Industrial Person of Merit Award of Traditional Handcraft 2002 winner Hisako Tamura, has inherited the techniques from her mother and the two are creating the temari together. The Hime Temari, created by rolling silk over and over, is brilliant and is referred to as a diamond ball from people of overseas.

Only 2 or 3 balls can be made in one day since they are handmade one by one. We prepare a certain number of inventory, but if the order exceeds the inventory, the balls will be produced from the time of the order, and this may take some time. Thank you for your understanding.
* The temari comes with a cushion
