Each tapestry is hand-painted in Nara, Japan by Yoshioka-san herself.
These tapestries are made of ramie, an extremely durable and lustrous fiber that is similar to linen, and often used in ultra-high-class designerwear clothing. Ramie, also called China grass, boasts a high resistance to bacteria, mildrew, rotting, and insect attacks, as well as a natural stain-resisting ability. Comes in a gift/stow-away box and includes wooden hanging rods and a string (attached) - all you need to do is decide where it should hang!
No photo can do justice to these beautiful vintage-style tapestries with their authentic, traditional "Oshima Tsumugi" textiles (learn more).
These impressively large tapestries emanate a sense of history, and the use of the lengendary antique fabrics make these truly one-of-a-kind works of art. A colorfully and intricately hand-painted plum tree adorns the center of each tapestry (ramie). The backside of the tapestry is lined with red silk, a hint of which can be seen from the frontside, resulting in a bordering effect.
