The Japanese Art Of Silk Marbling

CRAFT: The Japanese Art of Silk Marbling

Marble print maker Moriyoshi Nose is a master of his craft. Honing his skills over 39 years, Moriyoshi creates unique marbled fabrics for world-renowned brands, all from his small studio in Kyoto. The rise of machine processes and mass production make manual crafts such as these increasingly rare, and Moriyoshi sees it as his duty to keep the tradition alive. Passing in-depth knowledge on to his son, he hopes to see Kyoto Marble practicing this unique craft for years to come.
