Kimono
Silk
Stenciled warps and wefts (meisen)

The flat surface of this kimono appears to be textured and dimensional because of the way the designer has broken it up. The oddly shaped enclosures point in different directions, and helping to emphasize this are the multi-directional grafitti-like marks inside them. This piece has a very cubist look about it, brightened up and simplified for the commercial market.
