Netsuke by Katinka Waelbers

The art of the refined!

Welcome at the netsuke website of Katinka Waelbers. Netsuke are miniature Japanse sculptures that - from the 17th-century onward - were used to attach a wallet (sagemono) to the robes. Traditional Japanese garments - kosode or kimono - had no pockets. Tabacco, money, medicines and the like were placed in the sagemono and  hung by cords from the robes' sashes - obi.
