図説 みちのくの古布の世界 (ふくろうの本/日本の文化)

Reintroducing the forgotten Japanese fabrics from Aomori Prefecture in Northern Japan. This book shows a great collection of antique fabrics and clothing, with intricate embroidery and patchwork. It contains descriptions in Japanese for each of the pieces, and important lessons of the Mottainai philosophy, how every piece of fabric was precious, and would continue to be used.

東北の地では、小さな布切れでも大切にとっておき、継ぎを当て、刺繍し、織物に使った。こうして育まれた津軽のこぎん、南部の菱刺しなど、布を大切に美しく装う文化を紹介する。
