Keijyusha - Cylinder Case
This is a beautiful cylinder covered with Japanese paper on which various patterns are stencil-dyed. The patterns in this picture are from the "Toyamamoyo" series that is a collaboration with designers from Tokyo.
KEIJYUSHA, based in the north coast prefecture of Toyama, are a maker of the traditional Japanese paper Echizen Yatsuo washi. The unique designs were realised with a stencil dye method, developed by renowned textile designer Keisuke Serizawa (1895-1984) whose spirit still informs the work. KEIJYUSHA's innovations in washi have sustained the once almost lost paper tradition of their region.
