Japan has a very rich textile history, the major focus of interest and artistic expression being the kimono, which from the sixteenth century was the principal item of dress for all classes. It is wrapped left side over right and secured with a sash called an obi. It is not the cut of the garment but the pattern on the surface that is significant, with indications of gender, age, social status, personal identify and cultural sensitivity being expressed through colour and decoration. In the sixteenth century, there were no substantial differences between the kimono worn by men and women, but distinctions become pronounced in the course of the seventeenth century. The patterns on women's kimono became larger and bolder, with younger women's kimono being particularly lavishly decorated and brightly coloured. In the original kimono, the surface was divided into irregular pattern areas. Over time, such compartmentalization gave way to an approach that considered the garment as a whole, and in which technique and motif, pattern and ground were fully integrated. With the taste for dynamic, unified motifs, then clean, straight lines of the T-shaped garment served as a blank canvas, or scroll, for the kimono designer.
