Netsuke are intricately carved toggles that were worn by Japanese men during the Edo period (1615-1868). They became unfashionable around the start of the 20th century when Western clothing was gradually adopted. However, the kimono is slowly coming back into fashion.
In this talk, Mamiko explores the culture of netsuke-making in modern Japan and the craftsmen who keep this exquisite art form alive today. Mamiko has 25 years’ experience in teaching Japanese textiles and is currently a researcher of Katagami at the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA).
