Idea Code 09333

About forty years ago, Kurenai-kai was established by Iwao Saito, who wished to protect and hand down the long tradition of Japanese embroidery. Instead of keeping these traditional skills within a limited group of craftsmen, the organisation aims to spread the technique and spirit of embroidery to the general public through workshops. Through a generous collection of images and detailed close-ups, this publication presents different Japanese embroidery designs, including, birds and flowers, designs for costumes and interior furniture and objects.
