Keyholes, chain links or even tsuba sword guards, this abstract pattern is open to interpretation. But the gently graded blues make a fine pattern whether the light is on or off. Normally the pattern runs around the shade, we can fit the pattern vertically for shades 11" diameter or less - if you would prefer this just make a note on your order or drop us a line.
Kittaka Bingo Gasuri
We went to Hiroshima expecting to find colourful Bingo style kasuri, but instead we came across the Kittaka workshop who primarily work in blue and white only. The exception is their use of persimmon, which is used as a natural orange dye.
They are the only remaining commercial weaver using persimmon yarn that we can find and the soft rusty tones of the persimmon make their fabric very popular for lampshades.
