About this canvas
This kimono canvas set is made of two kimonos with blue ocean waves and fresh green color in common.
The upper canvas was made with the kimono's yakkake, which was the basis for the lower canvas.
Period / Story
The two kimonos used in these canvases were both made and used in the late Showa period.
Explanation and meaning of pattern and colors
The kimono used here is decorated with various decorative aokaiha (blue ocean waves).
The pattern of the blue ocean waves is considered to be a pattern of good fortune, with its pattern of waves spreading out infinitely, and the wish for eternal happiness and a peaceful life for all people.
Characteristics of the fabric
The lining that peeks out from the sleeves and hem is called "Hakkake," and there is a culture of enjoying the creative use of colors and patterns.
The top piece is an upcycled canvas of this hakkake. In recent years, plain fabrics are generally used for hakkake, but this one uses a fabric with a woven pattern, which shows the attention to detail of the person who first tailored the kimono.
Japanese embroidery is applied to the canvas in the middle.
Canvas can be displayed on a table, wall, etc. Hanging on a wall requires hooks, tacks or nails. It can also be displayed propped up on an easel. Ideal for a room makeover, housewarming gift, present, or souvenir for a loved one.
All the works are made from real kimonos, antiques and vintages. For this reason, the fabric may have traces of long-term use and minor fabric damages. In case there are any scratches or stains, we always add a photo of the area on the item page, so please check before purchasing.
