Rare Japanese Antique Textile  Kimono
A set of kamishimo and hakama made from cotton used to dress a bunraku puppet. The fabric is utilizing a cherry blossom pattern with a wave motif. The cherry blossoms are done in a style known as katagami, where the pattern is printed using a paper cut out placed on top of the fabric and dye is coated over it. The wave patterns are done in a print format similar to a technique known as inkin, where a woodblock is used to stamp the pattern. The crests are cut out from a separate fabric and pasted onto the set. The costume was made by, the Hamaguchi Akitaro Shoten in the Nihonbashi district in Tokyo. Although the store is no longer existing, the district is known for the Bunraku-za, or the National Bunraku Theater, and since the Edo period many shops specializing in Joruri items existed in the area. Age: Late Meiji to Taisho Period. Size: The Kamishimo: Height: 27" Length:33.5" Hakama: Height:37" Length: 22.25"
