Textile Origin: Translated as “thing to wear”, the kimono can be dated back to the 14th century with the most stylized garments emerging during the Edo Period. These large pieces of draped silk and cotton acted as canvases for artists to embellish with woven and hand dyed patterns, colours and embroidery identifying the seasons and social class of the wearer. From the early 20th century, styles were influenced by the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movement with wonderful large-scale patterns and embroidery. Naturalism is a popular theme adorning luxurious Japanese textiles. This elegant butterfly motif symbolizes happiness and springtime. The kimono fabric is an exquisite art form in itself with refined detail that makes exceptional decorative additions to your space.
