Sarasa is decorated cotton cloth, either printed or
hand-painted. Developed in India two thousand years ago, sarasa
arrived in Japan after the sixteenth century, where it had an
enormous artistic influence. This volume features Indian and
Persian woodblock print designs and exquisite Persian textiles. In
Japan, sarasa is used for everything from common wrapping cloths
and futon covers to sophisticated obi for kimono.
The Shikosha Design Library is prepared under the supervision of
Sachio Yoshioka, a fifth generation Kyoto dyer and frequent writer
on dyeing techniques and the use of color.
