[Perspectives] Inrō

Inrō are small exquisite containers from Japan. They are made up of separate sections that fit tightly into each other to form the whole. The inrō was designed to hang on a silk cord that ran behind the sash of a man’s pocketless kimono. The cord commonly passes through a channel at the sides of the individual compartments, keeping these together with the help of a small tightening bead, the ojime. At the other end of the cord is a small sculptured toggle or netsuke, which held the inrō (and other pouches) in place on the sash.
