Miniature Fiber Art - Osechi

This small wonder had just arrived in the mail today.   

It is a miniature Osechi set which my friend found in Japan. Osechi are traditional Japanese New Year foods. You can read about it here:

It measures only 2" by 2" (5cm by 5cm) !!!

The lid has a traditional design: pine, bamboo, and plum.  

All the foods are made from fabric or thread except aluminium foil case. What an intricate detail!

Happy Holidays, everyone!


  1. What a fun gift. We have a huge Japanese market in a suburb near Chicago. I haven't been for a while. This reminds me that I should make the trip out.
    Happy New Year!
