African Print

A textile story made in Kyoto

29,00  inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand

Did you know that the colourful, vivid African textiles we are familiar with were once made in Kyoto? It is a little-known fact that, in their heyday, Japanese-made multi-coloured textiles in an “African print” style were a highly sought after commodity loved by local people. more

Especially during the 1960s and ’70s, these unique cloths with a variety of patterns were produced in Japan and exported to various African regions, where they were transformed into typical garments, from festive outfits to everyday wear. It was a booming cross-cultural industry, which this book presents in stunning detail and colours, with numerous examples of swatches, archive photographs, and a textile history.
