Washi Greeting Cards by Kimiko Side—Set of 4—Kimonos

  • 1950

Kimiko Side has created dozens of different washi cards featuring kimonos. Four are included in this set. One pictures the apprentice geisha (maiko) and seven flowers. Another highlights the wide sash or obi that encircles a woman’s kimono. A third features maple leaves along with a kimono-clad figure. A card with two girls dancing completes the set. The artist cuts, folds, and glues Japanese washi paper to the card to create each delightful kimono card. Washi paper, used for several Japanese art forms, was traditionally made by farmers during the winter months. It is still produced in Japan with a painstaking process using pulp from kozo or other plants fibers. Dimensions of the cards are 5 ½ in x 4 ¼ in. The kimono-themed cards open vertically. Each card is blank inside, comes with an envelope, and is protected by a cellophane wrapper, and each is a work of art suitable for framing.
