Description: The Japanese have traditionally viewed textiles as an embodiment of not only beauty but also family heirlooms and repositories of history, making the study of Japanese fabric a door into another culture, another people, another time.

In Textile Art of Japan, Sunny Yang and Rochelle Narasin venture through that door, inviting the reader to follow them. They start with a brief but informative history of those most typical forms of Japanese dress, the kimono and the obi, and then move on to introduce the techniques of dyeing, weaving, and needlework that distinguish Japanese textiles, discussing their traditions, practical methods, and use on different types of fabrics.

This richly illustrated volume, with over 200 color illustrations, is the perfect introduction to the subject of Japanese textiles. It includes examples of modern Japanese fabrics made according to or by adapting traditional methods, and shows them used in innovative ways: in quilts, screens, cushions, and hats. A list of museums all over Japan with fine fabric collections and a selected bibliography are helpful additions to this beautiful book.
