Chizuko MATSUKAWA creates embroideries made of shining threads using the codes of wasai couture. She uses patterns and shapes of famous ukiyo-e engravings, which was a traditional movement consisting of drawings and watercolor works painted on wood.
This year, she will come to the festival to make you discover her work at the WABI SABI area alongside many craftsmen eager to show you the wealth of Japanese folklore!

A word on wasai art
Wasai is a type of couture which was taught to young women in olden times to refine their education. Many craftsmen still get inspired by this technique to the point where they restyle it to produce various creations such as accessories or figurines.
