Tour Japan with Elizabeth
Hunting for Used Kimonos in Japan — published in Impressions
I am frequently asked to explain not only why Asiatica has focused on Japan, but also for specific tips about traveling there.
Come to Japan with Asiatica for the Holidays
Elizabeth Fulder Wilson is the owner of Asiatica, a gallery and clothing design business in Westwood, a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri (fig. 1). Since 1977, in partnership with the collector Fifi White, who retired in 2001, she has been designing and selling clothing of vintage Japanese textiles and artisanal contemporary fabrics from Japan.
Japan in June
At Asiatica we never cease to be amazed by the beauty of Japanese culture and design. Inspiration strikes us at every turn — so for the holidays we'd like for you to tour Japan with us (through our photos we snapped on our summer buying trip.) You'll see what influences us and also what can be yours.
"Rainy Season" is not the ideal time for a visit to Japan. But given our trunkshow schedule, the antique show schedule in Kyoto and Old habits, here we are.
