Sanuki temaris are an ancient traditional craft in Kagawa. Local cotton was dyed in various natural colors and woven into gorgeous embroidery patterns. The patterns are typically colorful, geometric, and philosophical. During the Heian period, only girls of nobility played with temaris. They gradually popularized among the common folk during the Edo period. Adults collected silk threads from discarded kimonos and woven them into temaris, and gifted them to their children during New Year as a symbol of good fortune.
