Folk Textiles

Japan has a rich folk culture. Promoted in the western world by Soetsu Yanagi, with the help of others such as Shoji Hamada and Bernard Leach, in the 1920's and 30's, some of these items have now become collector's pieces. A wide range of skills are used in the decoration of Folk Textiles.

Indigo textiles form a large part of the folk textile category but there are also Nobori (Japanese flags), which are hand painted with tremendous skill. The indigo decoration techniques include -Shibori, this is a sophisticated tie dye technique wonderfully intricate designs can be achieved.

Katazome, this is a stencil dyed decoration using resist paste and intricate stencils, cut into mulberry paper (themeselves a work of art).

Kasuri (ikat), is a technique where the warp and sometimes the weft threads are tied and dyed before weaving to produce a predetermined pattern. Again simple and very intricate patterns may be achieved.

Tsutsugaki, this is freehand tube blown resist dyeing technique. Rich folk textiles can be achieved.

Sashiko,is a small stitch decoration, which strengthens the garment or cloth aswell as enhancing it visually.

For the textile collector this category is heaven but these pieces can be used as interior decoration with stunning effect.
