About this canvas
You can feel the autumn wind blowing from this beautiful kimono canvas with Japanese traditional pines pattern "Kasamatsu".
The kimono used for this canvas was made and used in late Showa period (probably 50ies to 80ies).
Explanation and meaning of pattern and colors
Traditional pines pattern called "Kasamatsu" spreading over a wave pattern called "Nami-mon". The gradation of white and beige gives a sense of autumn. The contrast between the black and blue-ish grey background is also eye-catching.
Kasamatsu is one of the typical pine tree patterns. The name "kasamatsu" comes from the pine tree's leaves and branches, which spread out horizontally and look like a hat.
In East Asia, the pine tree is considered a symbol of longevity because of its bright green leaves, even in winter. In Japan, it is also called "everliving" because of its evergreen leaves, which are green all year round, and has been considered a lucky tree since ancient times. In Japan, it was considered to be a symbol of good fortune since ancient times. The kadomatsu, a pine tree decoration, which is put at the gate of a house at New Year's, is a symbol of welcoming the gods.
Description of fabric characteristics
The pine tree pattern is accented with hand-dyed gold and "kinkoma" embroidery - a traditional Japanese embroidery method.
Kinkoma embroidery is an embroidery technique in which thick threads or gold threads that cannot be threaded through a needle are wound around a wooden piece (a kind of thread winder), which is then rolled, and the embroidery threads are laid along the underpainting and fastened with a binding thread. The gold threads add three-dimensional decoration to the artwork and delicate nuances of the pattern and add touch of luxury to the work.
