Questions About Japanese Silk
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    To tell if a kimono is made from silk, look for silk’s signature pearlescence, sheen and luster. Run your fingers over the fabric — it should feel smooth. Hold the kimono up from a single point at the neck. The fabric and it should drape luxuriously. If the fabric has a flat sheen, feels rough, or doesn’t drape well, it’s probably not real silk. Shop a collection of authentic silk kimonos from top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Japanese paintings have many names, based on their style. Works produced after 1900 are known as Nihonga and combine traditional techniques with modern themes. Sumi-e are traditional Japanese ink paintings, while Ukiyo-e are figure and landscape paintings from the 17th to 19th centuries. On 1stDibs, find a range of Japanese art.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, authentic Japanese kimonos are made of silk. Mulberry silk, which comes from the mulberry silkworm and accounts for around 90 percent of the world’s silk, is the most popular type used to make kimonos. Shop a selection of authentic silk kimonos on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A Japanese silk painting is identifiable by its depictions of everyday life and scenes that are abundant with detail. The red seal or chop can also help you determine the artist of the piece. You can shop a collection of expertly vetted Japanese silk paintings from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    What silk painting is called depends on the origins of the artwork. In Tibet, silk paintings made for religious rituals are thangka, while in Vietnam, the traditional art form is known as tranh lụa. On 1stDibs, shop a range of silk paintings.
