The “Hanamon” (floral pattern) from the imperial Shousouin treasury provided inspiration for this decorative pattern, boldly hand-dyed using the traditional Yūzen technique. Its carefully selected colors allow for a chic and sophisticated appearance. The base color of the Kimono was especially selected for its subtle and clear tone, giving off a cool, refreshing impression.
The obi belt is adorned with a paisley pattern using white and silver silk thread with a contemporary finish.
Using the Yūzen style’s glutinous rice paste technique, the peonies are illustrated with flowy curves to the very tips of its leaves and branches. Strands of golden thread with a hue of red are interwoven with a more subdued silver thread, portraying the elegant lustre of peony petals. The black color of the Kimono has a softness to it with a blended hue of brown, purple and navy blue embedded in the textile.
The obi belt is a masterpiece by the artist Asano of the “Shokuraku” store in Nishijin, Kyoto. The silk-woven Japanese quince and floral diamond design is simply stunning with its dark and light shading.
The Shippō pattern is often seen used in Kimono and Obi textiles. The pattern is achieved by the systematic overlapping of spherical forms, spreading infinitely in all directions. It is one of the so-called fortuitous patterns, as round shapes represent harmony and fulfillment, and they are never-ending. The Shippō-pattern on the Kimono textile work as frames for the delicate “Mujina-giku” motifs.
The obi, woven in Tango, Kyoto and dyed skillfully with the Yūzen style, also feature the Shippō pattern as silhouettes for the “Hanamon” floral pattern.
This set features a highly sophisticated Kimono manufactured in the “Soueba” fashion, constructed especially so that none of the pattern is cut off between seams. The dot pattern is wonderfully dyed with multiple shades of black, creating movement within the design. Miniscule embroidered flowers peek through the overlap panels and back of the sleeves, adding a lovely touch amid the formality. The Java Sarasa patterned Obi is Shiroi Karasu’s specialty; this particular piece is of the Odjiya-tsumugi weave from the snowy Niigata province.
‘Hikizome-bokashi’ (brush and ombre dyeing) is a traditional technique of Kyoto hand painted Yūzen. The brush is dipped into the dye, then it is brushed over the textile repeatedly to specially create the parts with dark color. Years of experience by the craftsperson is necessary to implement the gentle ombre effect of light and dark colors on the textile.
The Kimono is coordinated with a Nagoya-style Obi with a beautifully woven pomegranate pattern. The synthesis of boldness and sensitivity in this modern design is reminiscent of William Morris’ style.
This elegant hand painted ‘Karakusa’ (arabesque pattern) Kimono is stealthily embroidered over with even more silver Karakusa motifs. It is an exquisite article with a sense of fun and fashion.
The Obi is in Shiroi-Karasu’s specially selected shade of turquoise, embroidered with silken thread with a beautiful glow.
The Edo-komon pattern on this Kimono is dyed with the ‘Kobayashi-Sengei’ style, a designated National Heritage traditional craft.
Gyougi has a meaning of order, and just as the name suggests, dots as tiny as poppy seeds are arranged in an orderly manner. Wearing this traditional Edo-komon dye Kimono is a fun way to express one’s sophistication through their outfit.
It is matched with the most sublime strip of Java Sarasa Obi, which has a Japanese atmosphere to it.
Softly and elegant light pink color brightens up your complexion, and the embroidered Karakusa (arabesque pattern) here and there emphasizes your effeminate brilliance.
The cherry blossom motif Obi is a courtesy of the textile artist Asano of the “Shokuraku” store in Nishijin, Kyoto.
This Kimono with its beautifully soft yellow green hue is certainly no less than eye-catching. It is a fine article with a gorgeous stencil dye and delicate lines.
It is juxtaposed with an Obi with a geometric design and color combination brimming with playfulness.
A lily of the valley stalk is boldly positioned on the Kimono, enhanced by the magnificent base pattern. The brilliant and delicate work of hand painted Yuzen breathes life into the motif.
The Obi flaunts a flower garden with its beautiful silk thread embroidery. Look, there are also butterflies.
