Maneki Geiko is the long awaited result of Emily’s passion for creating hand made wonders and her lifelong love of Japan. She discovered Geisha at the age of 12. If it were possible she would have shipped herself to Japan to become one! Barring that she made learning everything she could about Japan especially about traditional art and crafts techniques, and the significance of traditional images and symbols. Emily’s imagination is populated by lovely geishas strolling amid falling petals; graceful koi fish and mighty dragons swimming in a never ending rainbow cycle; the hum and rhythm of Tokyo streets, and the Kawaii explosion of adorable friends to cuddle. The Year and seasons roll by, and can be seen in the changing florals and motifs on kimono and Kanzashi. Maneki Geiko is beckoning, won’t you come in?
