Featuring the iconic Daruma dolls — elegantly handcrafted using Japanese age-old techniques of Togidashi Hira Maki-e.

The Daruma is a type of Japanese doll which is modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism who proselytised his teachings from India to China. There is a legend surrounding Bodhidharma referred to as “Menpeki Kunen” (Nine Years Facing the Wall). This legend asserts that Bodhidharma, through sheer indomitable willpower, was able to maintain a meditative state facing the wall for a period of nine years.

“Daruma” is the physical manifestation of patience and willpower.
