Eriko Matsuda specialises in the weaving of delicate figured-gauze (monsha) fabrics. This kimono is entitled 'Spring' and is inspired by her favorite time of year. The pink hue, called akane in Japanese, represents the joyful atmosphere that accompanies the arrival of the season. It is created with madder, the grey deriving from plum and the green from a mixture of indigo and arthraxon hispidus.
