This illustrated volume presents highlights from the Victoria & Albert Museum's extensive collection of Japanese textiles and dress.
Ranging from embroidered kimono and woven actor's robes to the indigo-dyed textiles of rural Japan, this book explores the various patterning techniques that have been employed by Japanese textile artists from the seventeenth century to the present day. The richness and variety of the textiles are conveyed by the specially commissioned photographs, which include images of garments, bedding covers, gift covers, doorway curtains, decorative hangings, fabric lengths and samples.
Offering a wealth of inspiration to contemporary designers, this book provides an introduction to a vibrant cultural tradition, and should appeal to anyone interested in textiles or Japanese art and design.
