柳川毬 -Yanagawamari- is one of the TEMARI manufacture in Yanagawa-City, Fukuoka, Japan. The TEMARI is colorful knitted balls which traditionally have been made in Japan. They are used for decoration of Japanese traditional hotels or restaurants representing its own cultural beauty.
The idea of logo is simply came from the pattern of TEMARI so you can understand what it is at the first sight when you see it.
The package design is simply pressing the sealant on wooden box. According to the size of TEMARI, we made different size variation of the box. Customer can use this box to keep TEMARI nicely and also as a display box.
The Yanagawamari is all made-to-order product by Kinue Ogata who knitting it for over 50 years. It take to make one for one day because of the beautiful and complicated patterns!
A unique concept of Yanagawamari is seeing TEMARI as flowers. Because the TEMARI needs to be moisturized to keep its color fresh, they recommend customers to place vase aside of them when they display them.
