Folksy Friday

This is my first Folksy Friday ever! Hopefully it will be an ongoing thing that I remember to do. This week I was inspired by Japanese seasonal motifs from kimono prints. For early Autumn, around September and October these include deer, fireworks, persimmon, gingko, maple, chrysanthemum and orchids. I thought I’d base each Folksy Friday throughout autumn on a single motif, and go for all styles rather than just Japanese style. As deer are a more of a late summer motif I thought I’d start here. 

There seems to be a big range in the way deer are used as a motif on Folksy from super cute kawaii , through whimsical to a more sturdy or even noble feel. This selection represents what I feel are the best and most original use of deer motifs on the site! I’ve also tried to represent items across a range of budgets. 

Making this collection reminded me of the Japanese kimono trend ‘mori (woodland or forest) girl’. I think many of the jewellry and accesories form this set would be a perfect complement to a mori girl outfit and I would really like to try the style for a blog post in future!
