Description “SomeKatagami” (dying stencils) uses a base of washi Japanese paper that are glued together using persimmon tannin and then engraved with patterns using an engraving blade. These patterns are used for dying kimono and handkerchiefs. Some katagami, originally a tool for dying patterns, have fine detailed patterns created with a traditional method. This results in a beautiful objects with patterns shown on the surface of washi paper with designs giving a taste of the time it was made in.  The works on display at this time are some katagami from the Ishii Collection from the Nagoya Zokei University archives. They originally belonged to the Ishii Dye Works company established in Nagoya in 1891. This company played a major role in kimono fashion in Nagoya from Meiji through Showa. While some katagami has passed out of use as a current technique, these pieces have been preserved for research by Nagoya Zokei University. This exhibition seeks to shine light again on their value and consider new applications for the future.
