Nishijin is a famous district of Kyoto specializing in silk weaving, using techniques borrowed from manufactures in Lyon at the start of the Meiji era. The first techniques of weaving silk with gold thread (Nishijin-Ori) date back to the 6th century, but it was at the end of the 19th century that mechanization allowed a wider distribution.
Apart from the fabrics for kimono (and belt, Obi), weavings are made representing traditional decorations or scenes from the life of old Japan for decorative purposes.

The paintings present "Nishijin" silk fabrics woven using a technique from the beginning of the Meiji era (from around 1880) made in Kyoto in the Nishijin district in the workshops of the same name.
The motifs represented illustrate scenes from medieval Japanese life, Kyoto monuments, traditional motifs or Kami (Shinto spirits).
Direct import from Japan (Kyoto) highlighted in a modern glazed frame with sober cardboard mat.

Dimensions 30 x 40 cm.
