About Ikenobo

bannerB

Ikebana is the fine art of Japanese floral design, which originated over 550 years ago in Kyoto when the Ikenobo family used flowers for Buddhist offerings. Rather than simply placing flowers in a vase, the family strove to create the most beautiful, eye-catching arrangements. Passing their knowledge down from generation to generation, the Ikenobos have established ikebana as not only an art form but also a way of life, called kado. Today the family continues its ikebana tradition—Sen’ei Ikenobo is the 45th-generation ikebana master. Ikebana is practiced all over the world and continues to evolve with the introduction of new materials and new styles.
