A New Posting at Sri: A Patched, Boro Asa Kimono

Written on December 4, 2008

I’ve posted these detail images of an asa (hemp) boro kimono that I am offering for sale this week on my website.

Seeing this kimono against light shows off features that are hard to see with the ‘conventional’ photography I used to illustrate it on my website.  By placing the kimono against light, its layered patching is beautifully revealed and a whole new dimension of appreciation is unveiled.  I think it’s a great piece.

    Hi, i found your blog in Ann Wood blog.
    I like your selection of Japanese textiles very much!
    i love such patched ones, but I haven’t seen a dealer
    who has such number of them here in Japan.
    Beautiful!
