Temari, the ball used in the game kemari, was first introduced to Japan during the Tang Dynasty. It became extremely popular among the Japanese people. In the earliest days, parents and grandparents would remove the colored silk thread from old kimonos and stitch them together by hand to make temaris for their children/grandchildren as New Year gifts. The concept is similar to modern footballs. Although temaris no longer serve a purpose today, the delicate embroidery on the spherical surface has become a classic Japanese craft. Temari associations have even been established to certify the craft.
