美濃和紙

Mino Paper

和紙

奈良時代の戸籍用紙が美濃和紙であったという記録が「正倉院文書」に残っていることから、美濃和紙の始まりは、奈良時代だと考えられています。

It is thought that Mino Washi dates back to the Nara period (710-794), because records at the Shoso-in Repository show that it was used for a census during the 8th century. By the Muromachi period (1392-1573) the Rokusaiichi paper market was being held. This was set up by the locally influential Toki Nariyori and Mino Washi were shipped to Kyoto, Osaka and Ise, making it one of the best known papers of its times.

阿波正藍しじら織

Awa Indigo Cotton

織物

阿波しじら織は、18世紀の末に阿波地方で盛んに織られていた「たたえ織」という木綿縞に、明治時代の初めに、改良が加えられて織られるようになったものです。

This Awa Shoai Shijira Ori was developed from a striped cotton cloth called tatae-ori that was being extensively woven throughout the Awa area at the end of the 18th century. Various reasons have been put forward as to why this development took place but it seems likely that is was the result of finding that when wet cloth was dried in the sun, it produced an interesting natural crepe effect.

京友禅

Kyoto Yuzen Dyeing

染色品

染色技法は8世紀から伝わり、手描友禅は江戸時代に京都の絵師宮崎友禅斉によって確立されたと伝えられています。扇絵師として人気の高かった宮崎友禅斉が、自分の画風をデザインに取り入れ、模様染めの分野に生かしたことで「友禅染め」が生まれました。

Although dyeing techniques had existed since the 8th century, it is said that the yuzen technique of painting dye directly onto cloth was established by Miyazaki Yuzensai, a popular fan painter living in Kyoto toward the end of the 17th century. He introduced his own style of painting as a way of rendering pattern and this led to the birth of this handpainted dyeing technique.

一位一刀彫

Ichii Woodcarving

木工品・竹工品

江戸時代末期に、飛騨の山のイチイという木材を用い、その木目の美しさを活かし、色を付けない独特の彫刻で根付が作られるようになり、そこから一位一刀彫が大きく成長しました。

Ichii Itto Bori developed from small beginnings, when a woodcarver named Matsuda Sukenaga used a yew felled from the Hida mountains to make some rather special netsuke that were left uncolored and simply took full advantage of the beautiful grain of this wood. Since then, this craft has always been representative of the woodcarving done in the Hida region.
