SEIMONJÍ, HARADA (COMP.):
[NISHIJIN-ORI TEXTILE SAMPLES]. Mon-ori Obiji Mihon (Satin woven fabric samples). Nishijin, Kyoto, no date but about 1880-90.
. An album (30.7 x 21 cm) with more than one hundred samples of Japanese fabrics tipped-in, each with hand-written Japanese number. Nine samples are missing but two additional samples are loosely inserted. Lvs 28. Original boards, worn and dusty, and some staining to lower board. Title written in brush and ink on upper cover, address to lower. Occasionally some light foxing and a few marks to the text, pink stain to last few blank leaves, otherwise in good condition. The album contains sophisticated satin swatches (some multicoloured) for making Obis (kimono waist band) at Nishijin, a textile center in Kyoto. Nishiji is the term used for a refined weaving method which originated in Japan more than 1200 years ago. After a period of stagnation the Nishijin textile trade started to flourish again in the 1870s mainly because European Jacquard weaving techniques were introduced. We assume that this well-preserved sample book was used by a clothing store which provided customers made to order.
