WONDERFUL EMBROIDERY PATTERNS INTO AINU KIMONO

Ainu kimono is a short kimono worn by the Ainu on the island of Yezo, now Hokkaido, north of Japan.
The Ainu traditional clothing is often created with attush, a light but durable fabric made ​​from the bark of elm trees. Its golden color provides the perfect background for beautiful patterns and motifs in contrast, created from precious scraps of cotton fabric and silk thread obtained from the Japanese. These drawings, which are located at the openings and edges of garments, they serve as amulets, protecting the body of the wearer from evil spirits.
