Next month, Yoshiko I. Wada will be hosted by the Kaneko Museum in Omaha, Nebraska for a lecture, workshop, and exhibition featuring items from her Meisen kimono collection.

Her items will be part of a larger exhibition at the Kaneko, titled FIBER.

“Comprised of the following six exhibitions, FIBER provides a diverse sampling of the ways in which textiles and fiber art serve as a canvas for expressions of culture and the creative process.”

Attend the lecture, participate in the workshop, or visit the KANEKO to see incredible kimonos from the Yoshiko Wada collection.

In discussion on Meisen textiles, Yoshiko Wada states:

The term, meisen, was generally used to indicate mostly silk cloth that was patterned with printed or resist dyed warp or weft threads which were then woven into cloth.
