Slim Wind Chime
This wind chime has been designed to have a more slim opening that allows it to concentrate the sound and produce a slightly lower pitch sound. This wind chime not only sounds phenomenal but also has been meticulously designed to be aesthetically pleasing wherever you hang it from. As a gentle breeze hits the wind chime, you will get to enjoy the soft and calming sounds it produces.
The history of wind chimes in Japan:
A furin is a small Japanese wind chime, which is traditionally hung from the eaves of a house during the summer. The beautiful soothing sounds of Furin, or wind chimes are a symbol of summer in Japan, and are thought to have originated in China, and then arrived in Japan with Buddhism.
At the time it was believed that the sound of the chimes warded off evil spirits (and epidemics) and bought positive energy into the home.
The chimes are hung outside, or near the windows and people enjoy the soothing sounds they make when the wind blows. Many believe that the sound of the wind is a form of nature therapy, and that wind chimes can promote a relaxed, settled feeling.
