KIMONO Japanese old texistile pattern. 着物 織物 柄

KIMONO

Now a days, It’s become rare to see Japanese people in Kimono in daily life. Some people wear them in special occasion like wedding ceremonies, at new year’s day…etc… it is more like formal thing for us to wear them now. I know it is comfier to wear and easier to care but I am so impressed the quality of Japanese kimono texistile and the patterns Japanese in old days designed and have been really inspired by many of japanese traditional stuff since I came back to Japan. I happened to dropped in on this small place some old kimono was being shown on the way back home today. Most of the kinomo there were made in the early of Showa period. Some of them look so novel, new and still fresh to me. The drawing above I did many years ago and re-did around the kimono pattern today.

現代の日本では、日常で着物姿の人々はめったにみなくなりました。結婚式やお正月といった特別な時に着る、ちょっとフォーマルな時だけという方が多いかと思います。帰国してから大分経ちますが、外に出て視点が変わったのかそれまで気にも留めなかった様々な日本の伝統文化に魅せられ続けてきました。今日、帰宅途中、たまたま目に留まった小さな明治時代の建物で地味にやっていた古着物の展示。なんとなく中に入ってみると今でも斬新なデザインの着物たち。昭和初期にこの辺の地元オリジナルで織られていた技法とデザインらしいです。今見ても鮮やかで新鮮な感じがしますね。上のアートワークは何年も前に描いたものですが、今回の着物展示をみて少し手を加えました。
