In traditional Japanese dress, the inro box hung from the obi (belt) of a kimono, on a double cord. At the top of the cord, a large carving called a netsuke (pronounced nets-kay) acted as a toggle to anchor the inro. Our netsuke have authentic double-holes in the base.
These charming and detailed pieces are hand carved out of Japanese Boxwood. The figurines make perfect gifts for yourself or a loved one. Each piece has amazing character that is sure to make people smile.
