A suprisingly modern abstract pattern from the Sakata Orimono workshop makes for a intriguing shade. The pattern is a great example of weft kasuri (the grey squares) and warp and weft kasuri (the white squares). A beautiful gathered shade, lined in white cotton, that is just at home with modern decor as in a traditional country house.
The measurements are: Bottom Diameter, Top Diameter, Length of Side (not height).
The Sakata workshop is always bustling with activity. The Sakatas are constantly trying new ideas and patterns, whether it is opening a boutique in New York or collaborating with designers.
They are a big supplier of clothing, but are happy for us to explore their storeroom for any patterns we can find. They are a great combination of producer and entrepreneur - and are always fun to deal with.
