Skilled artists are getting fewer and fewer. There are limited number of such artists to whom I can ask for new pieces. You see in the pictures strokes with a sense of motion. It may seem simple but it is actually very difficult to portray such a motion. Why? Because it takes the caliber and mastership to depict an uncomplicated style like this piece with just a several strokes.

Recently it is hard to find artists who take my requests unlike famous kimono artists, who typically prefer to make masterpieces like Homongi. I admire pieces which express personalities of those artists, but sometimes I also feel it is like a museum collection it does not give room to us to wear it.
The artist creating this piece listens to what I want to produce. I describe my idea of the design,the color of the fabric, colors of motifs, ways the strokes move, length and width of strokes, each short strokes around the long strokes, the color of square frame (an original motif of Iseyoshi, almost invisible, about one millimeter small,,,) etc, etc. As he listens he absorbs my intention as if he erases himself. I said to him that I want to offer this Obi to women from late 20s to 80s who are fashion-conscious and prefer simplicity. I hope the one wearing it will travel across time and space starting from Ginza.
