Description

Kyoto was historically the capital of the high-end textile industry and also the centre of the Japanese printing industry which made it the natural place for the publication of Textile Design Books.

The customer base for these books originally consisted primarily of kimono dealers and consumers, wholesalers, dyers, weavers and yuzen artisans.

However, although they were originally created as functional tools for the textile trade, these books were printed from hand-carved woodblocks by skilled artisans and have since come to be viewed as works of fine art.

This is an original, hand-crafted woodblock print from the 1939 edition of “Oriho Taikan Vol.2” published by Unsodo, Kyoto
