I whip my kanzashi back and forth

I'm floored by these lovely kanzashi hair ornaments from Japan.  In modern day Japan, fabric ornaments are typically worn with kimono on special occasions.  For a dizzying array of kanzashi for sale visit Maya Japanese Traditional Arts & Crafts.  Etsy features 76 pages of kanzashi, mostly hairclips suited to American fashions, though Sakuradancer and Altetier Kanawa step up the game in a big way.
