About this canvas
Inspired by the sea, this canvas was created using the lining of a tsukesage kimono from the early Showa period.
This item was upcycled from a festive kimono made and used in 30-40ies.
It had been kept in a chest of drawers for many years. We upcycled the beautiful undamaged parts into interior decor pieces.
