Kyoto Woodblock - 1929 - Vintage Archive Poster Print


Originally created in 1929, this textile design has been  revived and repurposed by Print Sisters to create a limited edition modern artwork. 

This remarkable 6 colour woodblock draws inspiration from the intricate patterns inherent in kimono textiles, capturing the essence of dancing movement and scattered floral plum blossom elements. The inherent clean lines and elegance of Japanese minimalism gracefully merge with the aesthetic principles of Art Deco.

The 'Ume' plum blossom motif, symbolising perseverance, hope and renewal, carries profound significance as it blooms in late winter or early spring. Each element within this design reflects a celebration of life, showcasing the enduring beauty that arises from the intersection of diverse cultures and artistic styles.

To ensure the enduring quality of this design, it has been faithfully reproduced on ethically sourced materials. The process involves the use of digital printing techniques to capture the artisan's hand, the craftsmanship involved, the array of pigments and the delicate precision that makes this artwork truly exceptional.
