This looks like it is going to be an excellent exhibition.  Just a shame I won't be able to see it!

You can download a free catalogue pdf with more pictures.  The video chanels are worth watching too - Hirahan Senko make tenugui towels, happi jackets, maku drapes for temples etc. using traditional stencil dyeing techniques.

There's also a Facebook page.
