Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

Description

Today netsuke are considered an art form in their own right and are prized by collectors around the world. They are found in a variety of forms; including human figures, ghosts, animals, botanical subjects and masks. Skillfully worked, these miniature carvings are of great artistic value, but they also provide a window into Japanese culture and society.

This book brings together one hundred of the most beautiful and interesting netsuke from the collection of the British Museum, each of which has its own charm and story to tell.

Uncovering the stories behind these netsuke and coupling them with stunning new photography, this book reveals why these tiny objects have captivated so many, the meaning they have held for those who wore them, and what they can tell us about Japanese everyday life. An intriguing insight into Japanese culture and society.

The author Noriko Tsuchiya is a project curator specialising in netsuke at the British Museum. With the help of external experts, she has recently examined all of the netsuke in the British Museum’s collection and identified the top 100 netsuke for inclusion in this book.
