Details

The embroidery design on this metalwork class is based on a netsuke attached to an inro held in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Japan collections.
An inro is a container made up of tiers, worn because the traditional Japanese garment, the kimono, had no pockets. From the late 1500s onwards, Japanese men wore the inro suspended from their obi (sash) by a silk cord and a netsuke — a carved, button-like toggle. Originally used to hold a seal and ink, or a supply of medicines, inro rapidly became expensive fashion accessories with little practical use.— a carved, button-like toggle.
