Art – ohiō

33A037CA-351D-49C4-9D0E-C46C67CA8EA7

Ainu dress made of cotton and elmswood fibers (ohiō), Northern Japan, dated 19th c.

A beautiful example of how the most humble fibers can be elevated to works of art.

The dress is part of the collection of the Musée Guimet, Paris.

Inspiration: natural fibers and textiles.

  1. When i look at traditional women’s dresses in India, each of it was/is a work of art. Sometimes i feel sad we are losing art for a uniform of T-shirts and blue jeans….but then i take consolation in that God is in-charge and the best will happen in some mysterious way. 🙂
