"Vintage Furisode" Kimono Tapestry

An artistic, delicately designed kimono was re-purposed into this striking decor piece. The soft blue background and pastel dye work strongly suggest the original work was done in the 1950s, if not before. You'll notice masterful handwork in the coloring of the bamboo and florals, the gold couching around the featured elements and other refined accents. The yuzen technique of stencil and brushwork was used to create this one-of-a-kind work of art.

See the videos below for more information on these traditional textile techniques.
We create these tapestries by salvaging the designed hem area of a kimono when other sections of the garment are beyond repair or rescue. We keep the processing simple, retaining the original lining and stitching (usually hand done) and simply finishing off the upper edge to allow a display rod (up to 1.5" diameter) to be inserted across the top.
