kimekomi ningyoo 木目込人形 Kimekomi dolls
made from wood and cloth
. . . CLICK here for Photos !
Kimekomi Ningyou were created by Takahashi Tadashige, a priest at a Kyoto shrine, in the middle of the Edo period (1600-1868).
He made a small wooden doll that he had carved from scraps of willow which were left over from boxes used in a festival at Kamigamo shrine in Kyoto. Then using remnants of fabric from his priest's clothing, he dressed the doll by inserting the ends of the fabric into the wooden torso. At first, they were called Kamigamo dolls (Kamigamo ningyoo 上賀茂人形) after the place where they were made.
Later, however, they were called Kimekomi dolls because of the way that the fabric was inserted into slits in the wood, and the name stuck. "Ki" means wood, "Mekomi" means the technique that is used to tuck the fabric into the grooves on the doll's body. Subsequently, they were brought to Edo (Tokyo) where the craft became established.

Shyi Miyako Meisho Zue (拾遺都名所図会), Supplement to the Illustrated Guide to the Famous Places of Kyoto, dating from 1788,
shows three Dutch visitors on their way to Edo visiting the Nikenjaya tea house in Gion (祇園二軒茶屋) being amazed how delicate cutting of Gion Tofu (祇園豆腐) can be to the extent that does not exist in Holland. . . .
