Marbled Silk Peony Headpiece
An exquisite and enchanting marbled silk peony headpiece, created with hand-dyed organza silk fabric of a marble pattern. The flower is made with the Tsumami-zaiku technique, and is embellished with millinery stamens.
The flower is mounted onto a silver tone comb and is suitable for full or semi up-dos. A wonderful complement for a boho style outfit or an airy, pastel colour maxi dress. Perfect for a boho/woodland wedding or a special date.
The headpiece is made with extra lightweight, translucent organza silk fabric, which was carefully cut and hand-dyed with a marble pattern. The fabric pieces were intricately folded to create delicate details, which were then assembled into the peony.
Every headpiece is fully handmade so each one of them is unique. Utmost care is taken to ensure that every flower looks as similar as possible with slight differences.
Please keep the piece dry. Do not wash. Remove dust with a clean brush.

Tsumami-zaiku is an artisan skill originated in the Japanese aristocracy, dating back to the late 18th century. Today, the craft is still used extensively to make exquisite floral headpieces for Maikos (apprentice Geishas). Tsumami-Zaiku is a delightful union of Japanese tradition, culture, and nature. We aim to bring this over two-century-old craft into modern fashion, so as to create distinctive, unique, and alternative headpieces.
