Day-to-day life and natural landscape representations give a real feel of classic features belonging to the Japanese archipelago. Backgrounds are characterised by lively and colourful brushwork, and unexpected contrasts from intense red, sunrise-orange and bright horizon-blue to gentle beige and gray nuances.
YumikoMain components of the “Yumiko” pattern, meaning “her who generates beauty”, are the geishas wrapped in their kimono, some holding a paper umbrella or a handled fan, others playing music. As traditional Japanese artists, famous for their elegance and musical skills, they are outlined with a felt-tip pen to honour the ancient oriental calligraphy.
SagimaiHerons are the main components of “Sagimai”, a contribution to bird migration and its ritualistic dance, where costumes with wings and long necks replicate birds’ movements.
ShikokuWaves chasing each other in “Shikoku”, the smallest island in Japan, honour the surrounding ocean, which sheltered the island for centuries.
Unito HidaAmong the most figurative patterns there is also a wide range focusing on graphical features, such as scratches, halftones and marbling, to highlight the sense of movement.
The collection is available at 87cm width per linear meter, in natural raffia printed with mixed techniques, on a non-woven fabric metalized base.
