Osechi Ryori Jubako Bento Box

The temari pattern on this Jubako bento box leads its inspiration from temari balls which is a traditional Japanese craft that originated in China. Introduced to Japan in the seventh century in Japanese, the term “Temari” translates as “handball.” Handball balls and other related sports may be played using embroidery-covered balls. A similar-looking accessory, but with the addition of a hand strap and tassel, can be used as a kimono bag.

Historically, temari were made from kimono scraps. Wadding up scraps of silk fabric into a ball, and then wrapping the wad in fabric strips. Traditional temari developed into an art form as the practical stitching got more beautiful and elaborate, culminating in delicate embroidery on the balls.

Rubber was introduced to Japan, and the balls transitioned from toys to art items, while mothers continue to make them for their children. Temari developed into an art and craft practised by the Japanese upper class and nobility, with noble ladies competing to create increasingly beautiful and elaborate pieces, some of which were adapted to double as handbags resembling kimono bags.
