Temari Poi


Poi is both a noun and a verb; it refers to a South Pacific hunting weapon, a weighted ball on a cord, as well as dances performed with them. Skilled poi spinners can keep the poi in constant motion, moving through the paths of the balls with impunity and so effortlessly the poi seem to be a separate entity dancing around them. Ours combine the shape and function of poi with the decorative and sturdy stitching of a Japanese temari, for a pair of poi that are almost as beautiful at rest as they are in motion.
