arty Japanese appliques
I bought this absolutely charming book from an antique warehouse in Osaka. The art is made with pieces of kimono silk, woven tape, rope, threads and more. Very inspirational!
ARRIVED. THE BOOK, ENTITLED “RAG ART,” IS FROM A 1988 EXHIBITION BY AYAKO MIYAWAKI. IN THE FOREWARD, IT SAYS “ We hope visitors of the exhibition will enjoy this aesthetic world, which has been created by a housewife.” MRS. MIYAWAKI WON INTERNATIONAL ACCLAIM FOR HER TEXTILE WORKS!
