LinNe was created so that people can enjoy the sound of “sahari” orin bells in their everyday lives; adopting them beyond their formal use as a Buddhist instrument.
Each orin has its own unique tone, and will resonate with each individual in a different way. The embracing reverberations of the orin may feel nostalgic, cleansing, calming, or heartwarming. Find the tone that connects with you and integrate the sound of orin into your daily life.
Each orin is individually hand-knotted using a Kumihimo (braided cord) called "Shouken Karauchi" made by craftspeople at the Shoen Kumihimo Workshop in Uji, Kyoto.
・Chibi (S) Aioi Knot
・Chibi (M) Chrysanthemum Knot, Double Knot
・Ren Double Knot
Each braided hanging cord is individually hand-tied by a kumi-himo craftsperson using a winding method called “Oda-maki”.
This creates a spherical knot with no visible break, regarded as a good luck charm for continuous relationships.
While retaining a traditional Kyoto identity, the sleek design of the Myo is not limited to the accouterments of Buddhist rituals and fits seamlessly into everyday modern life and style.
