public_access_description
Yoshinori Tsuchiya's initial interest in the textile arts was stimulated by his fascination with natural dyes and the fact that amazingly bright, pure colours can be achieved using common plants. His work engages with nature, not only through the use of organic dyes, but through the weaving of precise geometric patterns inspired by the beauty of the landscape. The delicate figured-gauze weave (monsha) fabric of this kimono, which is entitled 'Blue Mountains and Green Rivers', was inspired by the brisk air and clear waters of Mount Qingcheng in Sichuan Province in China.
