A great object and Nuno.
There is an occasional antique fair at Heiwajima in Tokyo. Unlike the fair in Kyoto, this fair has some more substantial objects and fewer old kimono. I went there this morning -- a $35. taxi ride each way -- to see if there was anything I could not live without.
This is what i found.
Then to Nuno where my friend Reiko Sudo, the genius behind this remarkable textile company, has designed a sweet delight, yokan, in stripes for the Toraya Company. It made its debut today. Reiko pointed out the you can get a different striped pattern with each bite.
I ordered and swatched new Nuno fabrics for Asiatica and also some scarves.
