[MS OF JAPANESE TEXTILE DESIGNS].
Echigoya Magobei. No place, (Tokyo?) about mid to late 1700s.
. This exquisite design manual (21 x 31 cm) contains eighteen leaves folded in the oriental manner. Original blind-pressed blue paper covers, rubbed. The album comprises 35 water colour illustrations depicting different flower patterns, of which one design covers two pages depicting phoenixes and flowers, sprinkled in gold. Hand-written captions in Japanese and the name Echigoya Magobei is written on the inside of the rear cover. Echigoya was a large gofukuya (kimono) shop founded in 1673 in Nihonbashi (Tokyo). Later this shop was incorporated with the Mitsukoshi Department store. We believe this manual functioned as a shop's customer manual or rather an "idea book" of different designs for ordering kimonos, obi belts or other types of textiles. This type of handmade design manual was later replaced by woodblock-printed zuan-ch books. The illustrations are finely drawn and painted in soft and delicate colours by a skilled artist(s). It is a unique, well-preserved specimen of a Japanese pattern book from the 18th century.

[JAPANESE MEN KIMONO SAMPLES].
"Iwa no Tamotsu". [A manual with 110 stylish textile samples]. No date, ca 1930.
. A large size manual (36 x 25.5 cm). Contains 110 samples, of varies sizes, mounted on heavy paper. Twenty-two leaves bound in fukuro-toji style. Contemporary boards, gold speckled, some discolouration on upper cover, title painted in blue on upper cover.A handsome manual with sophisticated textile samples for male kimonos. The patterns are mainly traditional geometric but there are also some with figurative and floral designs. The colours are discreet, mainly blue, black and various red tones, some with silver elements. We don't know who it belonged to but probably a refined tailor's shop. Due to the numbering (111 to 220), we assume that this is a manual out of several.
