DESCRIPTION: This magnificent, free style, hand
embroidered Pine Tree (“Matsu”) has been created
entirely from hand made, pure white, gold threads. This
is a form of “Couching,” which, in Japan, was an
elaborate and costly process of decoration. This
precious White Gold Thread is
prepared by first
painting a layer of liquid gold on thin, hand finished
paper, usually rice paper, and then wrapping it around
several threads of Silk. Because of its delicacy, it could
not be sewn into the fabric; but was, instead, laid on top of the fabric, and then hand stitched to it.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:
A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
