DARUMA – Red
w/ Japanese Brush Pen
This is a bespoke DARUMA handmade by craftsmen in Japan. Our original DARUMA is designed based on the idea of Japanese traditional “DARUMA Doll”, which is a symbol of good luck, protection, and welfare. “Fall Seven Times, Stand Up Eight” is a Japanese proverb and represents getting on with life.
Each DARUMA comes with a Japanese black writhing brush pen. You paint in one of DARUMA’s eyes to make a wish. Once your wish comes true, paint in the other eye to celebrate your achievement gratefully as done in Japan.
