What is Ise-Katagami?

Ise-Katagami refers to carved Katagami (stencils) employed to print patterns on Japanese Kimono fabric. Theories vary as to how it originated, but some say it has been known in Japan since the Nara period, which is more than a thousand years ago, or at least by the Muromachi period (1336/38–c.1573). The sophisticated skills involved in its production have been established and developed in Ise (Shiroko, Ejima, and Jike districts of Suzuka City, Mie Prefecture), where they have been handed down through many centuries. In the second half of the 19th century, Ise-Katagami designs were introduced to the West, where their design excellence rapidly gained the admiration of artists, and significantly influenced contemporary artistic movements such as Art Nouveau in France, and the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain.
