Modern Kyoto Patterns

Regular price $34.95
Kimono and yukata... Approximately 240 points of Showa interior designs.

Due to the import and development of mechanical printing machines, the dyeing industry has become possible for mass production. Especially in Kyoto, from the 1950s to the 1970s, new patterns were produced and produced one after another, from Japanese patterns to pop designs. This book contains about 240 items from the enormous number of designs left by Tetsuro Terada, who was active as a design artist at the height of his work. As the design changes, we follow the changes of the times.

This book is compiled by Kyoto Institute of Technology, Museum of Arts and Crafts Museum
