Re: [SCA-JML] Printing Mon on Fabrics?
- Greetings from Tsuruko,
They were dyed when the fabric/garment was dyed. Different dye
techniques were used depending on the time period in question.
Last March I attended a brief talk on Traditional Japanese
Textiles given by the owner of Kasuri Dyeworks. He was discussing modern
kimono, but I found the following facts interesting.
If the dye color inside the mon matches the surrounding fabric the
garment was custom dyed. If it doesn't match that means the crest was left
white when the fabric was dyed and the crest filled in later.
