Katagami

Using one of the world’s largest private collections of Japanese stencils Brintons has translated these beautiful, handcrafted pieces into a stunning and unique collection of carpets.

Originating in the Nara Period (710-794), Katagami (Japanese stencils) were first used for applying designs in dye to leather goods such as stirrups and warrior helmets. They later came to be used for dyeing textiles and made great advances with the development of the kimono culture.
