Japan 2019 Fall Tour – Day 17

We visited The Senbido Dye House in the Nara area today. Mr. Shinobu Yasukawa does marbling on silk fabric. This is one of many deigns in his gallery. [click photos to enlarge]

Mr. Yasukawa and his wife posed with me in fronting the studio.

A paisley pattern which is a popular and recent design. It’s a large one; maybe a meter square.

Another design. There were so many different colors and designs it was hard to choose. I got two but could have chosen many.

I bought this lovely scarf. Seemed to resemble marbling so much.

The second scarf I bought is a heavier silk and lined with a solid kimono fabric.
