Traditional Japanese Textiles

By Susan | Comments: 1 | April 30, 2015


I’m in the midst of planning a trip to Japan for next year. I’m a little (ok maybe a lot) obsessive about planning for trips. I love reading up on places to go visit and making itineraries and finding fun things to do. This time we are aiming to go see a few more places that we’ve never been to before so I’m thoroughly enjoying my research.

One of the places I’ve found to be an excellent resource is YouTube. Lots of great documentaries and travel shows and an equal amount of truly tragic ones too. Along the way I’ve found some good pieces that cover Japanese Textiles so I thought I’d share them with you. Some of them are a bit old and a little high school video lesson about them, but that also makes them a little bit charming too.

    Thanks for sharing – I’m off to Japan in September which I’m extremely excited about. Only for 2 weeks though, so it’s hard to limit all the things I want to see!
