This is the first of several Field Guides I plan to publish. In it, you’ll find an abundance of real samples against which to compare any treasures you find while you’re out and about shopping in Japan or treasure hunting at home. Maybe check them off as you spot them in the field - the textile junkies nod to “birding”!
One hundred sixty pages with one hundred twenty samples, covering all major and minor Japanese weaves as well as dye methods. This is a great reference for anyone interested in textiles in general as well as those seeking to improve their knowledge of the wealth of fiber arts historically produced in Japan.
