Ainu Pattern Folk Arts

Ainu Pattern Folk Arts These Ainu patterns were once used on wooden tools and ceremonial dress. In addition to their visual aesthetic, the character they gain through long use makes them a valuable memento of your trip to Akan. Folk art made using these patterns are generally divided into carvings or embroidery. Carvings often include figures holy to the Ainu, such as owls and bears, and can be quite small and finely carved accessories. Embroidery holds the power to keep bad spirits at bay, as a kind of talisman.
