Katagami are a quintessential part of Japanese textile history. These repeating stencils were used to dye and pattern everything from everyday cloths to silks and yukata, with the hand-carved designs often intricately detailed. Truly objects of ingenuity, katagami stencils are hard-wearing despite being made from paper due to their plant-based waterproofing process. This rare opportunity to view a wide selection within Tokyo will appeal to fans of Japanese fashion history, illustration and textiles.
