Otedama Juggling Balls

These vibrant juggling balls are made for otedama, a Japanese juggling name which can be played alone or in a group. To play, a player juggles four to five balls at once, though you can perform tricks or take turns with other players, often by singing songs out loud. These toys are made of linen and filled with adzuki beans, for a safe, all-natural toy. 

A celebrated textile and graphic designer since 1968, designer Karsuji Wakisaka’s inspiration comes from the Kyoto landscape and the mod styles of the 1960sWith a mission to revitalize traditional Japanese styles, his modern designs combine contemporary patterns with traditional Japanese shapes.
