Shipping is calculated by computer and is not always accurate. When in doubt, feel free to email me a list of the items you would like to order, and I'll get back to you with an accurate amount. Another option is to place the items you'd like in your cart, take a picture of your screen with the order, and email it to me. If you use the web page shipping algorithm and are overcharged, I'll certainly notify you and refund the difference.

When in doubt, please contact me first.


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.
