Nishijin Textile Museum, 3F, Nishijin Textile Center
Nishijin is generally known for its kimonos and obis, but since the Heian period (794-1185), Nishijin textiles have been used for interior decorations, furnishings, and ornaments for shrines and temples.
This exhibition focuses on tapestries and tablecloths from the collection.
Tapestries are hung on the wall or placed in a room to enjoy their patterns, and include tapestries with a strong sense of presence as well as decorative strips.
Tablecloths is a table centerpiece, a piece of cloth hung in the center of a table or desk at a dining or reception room. It is used to keep the table clean, and many Nishijin brocade tablecloths are highly decorative, adding a beautiful accent to the room.
This exhibition introduces mainly large pieces. We hope you will take a look at the Nishijin textiles that add color to a room.
