An Omi Jofu Child’s Kimono: Indigo Dyed Hemp or Ramie
Omi jofu is woven in Shiga Prefecture, which neighbors Kyoto Prefecture; omi jofu is made from both hemp and ramie, and the best examples are of hand plied yarns. In this child’s kimono, we see Omi jofu’s characteristic indigo dyed kasuri or ikat weave. This small kimono bears the lovely pattern of paulownia flowers, folding fans and plum blossoms, images that suggest delicacy and fortitude simultaneously. asa | Sri Threads
Floral Winter in Kyoto (by vivienne*)
Japanese Tomesode 1950s
Chirimen silk crepe formal winter kimono with yuzen dyeing, gold couching and gold surihaku.
This kimono was made and worn by a woman living in Tsugaru, a penisula in the very north of Honshû, the main island of Japan. It is woven with fine indigo-dyed ramie. The decorative panel on the upper part has been stitched in white with a diamond pattern, a technique known as kogin. If she was to make a good marriage it was essential that a Tsugaru woman master the skills of kogin, and training began at an early age. By her wedding day the bride was expected to have woven and embroidered a number of fine garments for herself and her future husband. These would be worn on special occasions.
