Kimono & Calligraphy
Two special things, all in one.
You have a favorite kimono but all it does is take place in your closet.
Why not transform it into a beautiful piece of art that can be displayed where everyone can see it?
Our mini-folding screen type and scarlet-seal booklet type calligraphy art can use your kimono fabric to make it even more special.
As an extra service, strings can also be attached to the other pages of the scarlet seal booklet or to the other faces of the mini-folding screen so that you can insert your favorite pictures or other items.
Fabric needed is usually about 30 cm by 36 cm. Depending on the style and design you want, these dimensions can change. When ordering, we will ask more specific about this.
One of a kind calligraphy made just for you.
Here at Kanji de SHO, calligrapher Shunyou takes your request and then puts brush to paper to create a work of art like no other.
You can choose from kanji characters, a favorite word or even your name. Let me turn your name into a work of art using kanji characters.
A present for a newborn, a one of a kind birthday present, a souvenir or even a wedding gift.
Our calligraphy art is the perfect thing for when you want to give something that is one of a kind.
About the Art
Photos and postcards
The calligraphy is held in place by strings instead of being mounted directly onto the backing. Because of this, calligraphy art, as well as pictures can be used interchangeably.
Using the customer’s fabric adds an extra 2000 yen to the price of the product.
We are unable to use fabric that has stitching or embroidery on it.
Fabric Color Loss
We use a high pressure iron to create these pieces of kimono art. Because of this, there is a chance that the color of the fabric can change in the process.
The Form of the Calligraphy
The kimono style of our mini-folding screen type and scarlet-seal booklet type calligraphy art are only available in vertical writing.
