Kyoto Kyo-karakami Postcard - Plum and Pine

 

We are thrilled to offer Kyo-karakami Postcards in our Zusetsu store!

 

Our postcards are small, beautiful samples of an immense Kyoto tradition of fusuma sliding door decoration, which was very popular in the Heian era.

 

The beauty of the decoration, brought out by glistening seashell mica, has passed through the centuries amongst the tea houses and villas of nobles, samurai warriors, and tea ceremony masters.

 

Maruni, in Kyoto, continue this tradition, using original printing blocks from the Tempo era(1830-1844).

 

Our postcards show a small detail of this fascinating art.

 

Plum and Pine is an ivory white card with a snow white pine branch and plum blossom design which is printed by hand.

 

It's an elegant design, and the plum blossoms and pine branches represent continuity and strength.
