Hakutaku & Baku, designed by Candie Bolton, are 1.5" tall hard enamel pins with rubber clasps, each produced in a limited edition of 120 pieces.
This pin duo presents the artist’s contemporary take on two of her favorite characters from the world of folk Japanese spirits (Yōkai). Loaded with detail and yet elegant and charming, these two will devour your dreams and nightmares, bad experiences, and general ills, separately or as a matching set.
