Nobuyuki Takai (高井信行)
Nobuyuki Takai is a disciple of Takeshi Yamauchi (山内武志) who used to be a disciple of Keisuke Serizawa (芹沢銈介) who was a dyer designated as a living national treasure.
He is very good at pattern dyeing and Tsutsu Gaki (one of the techniques of dye) and won the exhibition named Kokuten (国展) several times.
The traits of his design are the lively lines and shapes.
The lively and uneven lines carved by hand give this un unique sense. There are nothing same shapes or lines of the patterns because this is hand-carved.
It is designed that knots have different expressions by surrounding furoshiki with stripes.
Linen prevents germs and molds from breeding because it has four times hygroscopic nature that cotton does as well as that it’s fast-dry.
It results in preventing bad odors. It is said that linen is the most durable of all the natural fibers.
The used linen is from France -French linen- and this has the lovely feature which gives you a crisp feeling of linen. The fabric is thin and easy to use as a scarf.
※The laundry symbol says “dry clean” as linen is likely to shrink when washed.
