Netsuke are small carvings in ivory, wood and many other materials used since the 17th century as stoppers for Sagemono which are the various items for daily use attached to the Kimono sash, such as Inro (medicine containers), purses, tobacco pouches, etc. Sagemonoya figures among the top dealers in this field and counts customers all over the world, including the Japanese Imperial family, leading collectors and museums. It publishes yearly catalogues used as reference books in many libraries.
