Sri’s “Mini-Exhibition” at Kiosk, 95 Spring Street, NYC

Written on January 29, 2009

Kiosk, the wonderful store on Spring Street in SoHo has asked Sri to produce a “mini-exhibition” starting today, 29 January through 7 February.

We decided to show antique and vintage Japanese bags of all kinds: the pieced-constructed komebukuro, sakabukuro or sake straining bags, imon-bukuro which are the commercially produced “comfort bags” that were used to send gifts to soldiers during WWII.  We also brought some of our objects to sell, and we thought it would be a good idea to mix up the exhibition with some of Kiosk’s inventory from Japan.

It’s a fun juxtaposition: the old, hand-made items from Japan mixed together with commercial products from all over the world.  Certainly the Japanese ladies who decades ago hand stitched the bags on sale at Kiosk would never have imagined their handiwork on display in New York City!

Have a look at this nice Shaker drying rack available at Kiosk.

…and we love these baskets: truly multi-purpose.
