HOME BIOGRAPHY NETSUKE OTHER WORK THE BOOK
 
 

Traditional Japanese garments had no pockets, but a place to keep personal belongings such as pipes, tobacco, money, seals, or medicines was still needed. The elegant solution was to place such objects in small containers or cases fastened with a bead, suspended on cord from the sash of the robe, and kept in place by a button-like toggle, the netsuke.
