Collection: Darumas

Japanese Daruma Dolls are based on Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism and are one of the most popular symbols of good luck in Japan. Daruma, also known as Dharma Dolls, are associated with a beloved Japanese proverb, 'nana korobi yaoki', which means, 'fall down seven times, get up eight', as the Daruma doll's rounded shape allows it to return to its original position, even if knocked over, representing such persistence!

Japanese Daruma reminds us all to never, ever give up on our goals in life and are a popular gift of encouragement, commonly used alongside goal setting!

Darumas, though typically red and depicting a bearded man (Dharma), vary greatly in colour and design depending on region and artist. Japanese Daruma Dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them an ideal gift of encouragement!
