This event has ended.

Nabeshimadantsu is a style of cotton rug at the roots of such tradition in Japan, first emerging 300 hundred years ago. Its cotton base made it perfect for the changing seasons of Japan, while being beautifully designed and much loved by the feudal lord Tsunashige Nabeshima. In fact he kept its production a close kept secret of the feudal district, with the sale of these rugs to ordinary people being forbidden, instead being presented as precious gifts offered up to the Shogunate and leaders of other feudal districts. Nabeshimadantsu Yoshijimake continues to preserve this tradition of rug making even today. In this exhibition the studio presents rugs with the historic mark of the peony tree and crab claws, along with 30 new works of varying size including tatami mat size, as well as cushion size and entrance way sizes. These are rugs suitable for all seasons, to be used throughout the year.
