Sri | Sri

Sri is a by-appointment textile gallery specializing in antique Japanese folk textiles, highlighting the indigo dyed cotton fabrics and boro--or patched and mended--textiles of old Japan.

boro – the fabric of life

Mottainai and boro boro are two terms in Japanese philosophy which seem to perfectly contextualise Boro: The Fabric of Life, exhibited at Domaine de Boisbuchet. Mottainai is a term which conveys a deep sense of regret concerning waste whilst the phrase boro boro celebrates the beauty in something frayed, decaying or repaired and provides the exhibition with its title.

PingMag - The Tokyo-based magazine about “Design and Making Things” » Archive » Japanese Construction Worker Fashion

Ever since I moved to Tokyo, I’ve come across new construction sites almost every single day. Seeing the workers at the middle of the night - especially in this cold season of the year - I say “thanks a lot for working so hard,” in my mind.


Serizawa: Master of Japanese Textile Design | Japan Society Shop

A 134-page, fully illustrated catalogue edited by Joe Earle and published by Yale University Press provides the historical, cultural, and ideological context for Serizawa's unique oeuvre in six essays written by leading Japanese and American scholars of 20th-century Japanese art and literature.

Studio and Garden: Serizawa Keisuke and Textile Design

Another of the exciting shows I saw while on my recent trip to NYC was a survey of the textile works of Serizawa Keisuke (1895-1984) at Japan Society, a Japanese designer who took his inspiration from the traditional techniques of stencil dyeing. This kimono was stunning in its color harmonies and surprising shapes. There were others just as dramatically beautiful. Some of the most startling designs were on Noren, or entrance curtains, their shapes strong and simple.

Japan Society, New York - Serizawa: Master of Japanese Textile Design Gallery

SERIZAWA KEISUKE (1895-1984) Ehon Don Kihōte (A Don Quixote Picture Book), title page dated October 1936 but book completed 1937. Paper stencilling and hand painting on paper, 11 1/4 x 8 1/4 in. Tōhoku Fukushi University Serizawa Keisuke Art and Craft Museum.

Serizawa at the Japan Society Museum- artnet Magazine

I had the good fortune to tour the comprehensive survey of works by textile master Serizawa Keisuke at the Japan Society, curated with admirable rigor by the society's gallery director Joe Earle, with two formidable blondes, Alexandra Peers of the Wall Street Journal and Alice Judelson of I-20 Gallery. As Peers commented, using an old journalistic term, "They buried the lede," by putting the jewels of the exhibition, Serizawa's incomparable kimonos from the 1960s, in a back room of the gallery, where you might miss them.

中原淳一 Junichi Nakahara  : un album sur Flickr

中原淳一 Junichi Nakahara (1913 - 1988), Kawaga Prefecture Junichi Nakahara was one of the top leaders in fashion illustration during the first half of the 1900's and his artwork of wide eyed women is often referred to as the forerunner of manga. Junichi illustrated not only women in kimono, with an obvious Taisho / Art Deco feel to them, he also did many illustrations of stylishly dressed women in yofuku (Western clothing). I personally find his colourful and dynamic kimono styling to be a major inspiration to my own kimono closet and style, and never grow tired of looking at his illustrations. I hope that by sharing postcard scans, they will be of inspiration to others also.


The "randoseru" backpack is a cultural icon in Japan, most schoolkids wear one and most adults consider it a symbol of "school days." Outside of Japan these small backpacks are appreciated for their boxy roominess and distinctive style by people of all ages. Hideo's family business is one of the leading makers of randoseru in Japan. In this version, Hideo has re-designed it with lightweight and weather-resistant polyurethane in place of heavy leather.
