The story behind

From the 16th century and throughout the Edo period, from the early 12th to the 19th century, Portuguese merchants imported Indian calicos into Japan. Geometric-shaped patterns in bright-colored cotton fabrics stand out from the hemp and indigo cotton of Japanese textiles, and the craze came quickly. Both used to wrap objects and to make kimonos, sarasas (a term derived from the Portuguese word for calicos) were soon produced by Japanese weavers. They took care to perpetuate its ornamental style by introducing their own inspiration over time. Aline Honoré created a sumptuous kimono made of a combination of motifs borrowed from these fabrics.
