Kanzashi tsumami is the Japanese art of folding delicate squares of silk into three-dimensional flower petals. Painstakingly, petal by petal, Kanzashi artists build intricate flowers, which are incorporated into the elaborate headdresses worn by geisha. In the United States, the online craft culture has sprouted a renewed interest in making Kanzashi, with American crafters devising simplified ways to create these gorgeous fabric flowers, and incorporating more user-friendly materials like cotton and synthetic fabrics along with the traditional silks.

Kanzashi in Bloom takes the American interpretation of Kanzashi a step further, presenting modern, simplified flower designs as elements in a variety of fun, hip craft projects. The book offers instructions for four simple Kanzashi components, and demonstrates how these elements can be mixed and matched to create 20 diverse projects, including jewelry, fashion embellishments, ornaments, and home décor items.
