Diligence and Elegance is a tribute to the unknown makers who created Japanese textiles for daily life and special occasions. Their work demonstrates how ingenuity, diligence, meticulous training, and the scrupulous work of artists and craftspeople have shaped a Japanese aesthetic, both in the past and today. The catalogue presents Japanese textile crafts as highly developed skills that are passed down by individuals from generation to generation. Essays by Susan Warner Keene and Natalia Nekrassova.
