      You have Matsuyama Mokurai and his wife Aki'ame (aka Anne Liese
      Wolkenhaar) up in PA--they are about 45 min to an hour north of philly,
      IIRC.

      Aine and I are down in VA, which is probably a bit far (I think it is 3~4
      hours up to Philly, usually).

      I don't know if Giovanna is still out on the list, but she is up in
      Maryland.

      I'm sure there's others, but I'm not sure where everyone is. If you come
      to Atlantian University in June, however, we will be having an entire
      track on Japan, so I'm sure we can help you.

      What are you looking for? This list can answer most questions people
      have.

          I'm not as knowledgeable as I as I wish I was in garb. All of my questions
          I get answered through this list. the people here are vastly more knowing
          about Japanese things and can answer a variety of questions.

              Hi!!

              My primary concerns right now are 1) putting together a name and
              persona and 2) putting together some garb.

              A couple of the websites I've hit (including Hiraizumi-dono's) have a
              lot of helpful info on putting together a proper Japanese name. I
              still need to research into late-period Japanese history & culture to
              decide what class, occupation, and history my persona will have. Any
              suggestions about resources here would be helpful . . .

              As for garb, I have found a site offering really nice cotton prints,
              but I'm still trying to find a good & affordable source of patterned
              (woven, embroidered, or painted) Japanese silk. I've seen a couple
              websites that offer bolts of fabric and/or karinui (such as
              www.yokodana.com and www.ichiroya.com), but given the prices I think
              I might be better off buying modern kimono from eBay and then
              modifying them to look more like period kosode & uchikake. I believe
              that kosode sleeves were short and rounded with small sleeve openings
              and attached all the way to the body and that kosode were made to be
              ankle-length (though uchikake could trail), but I still need to learn
              the more subtle differences between modern kimono and late-period
              kosode.

              I would love to get together sometime with some of you for a
              brainstorming/sewing session. Unfortunately, right now I am helping
              my husband finish his senior project at Drexel, so I don't know when
              I'll be free. I'll will let know you when I am to see if we can
              coordinate something.

              Domo arigato,

              Genevra

              Have you checked out Thai Silks? They have some lovely brocades, not 100% silk, but close enough...they do look exactly the same. That s what I m using for

                Have you checked out Thai Silks? They have some lovely brocades, not
                100% silk, but close enough...they do look exactly the same. That's
                what I'm using for my handfasting at Pennsic. They sell there for a
                $11.20/yd, 29" wide. Yes, it's a little pricey, but far less than the
                $29 or $30/yd I've seen at fabric stores in the DC area. I purchased 8
                yards of fabric, and plan on having a fair amount left over. I'll be
                making an uchikake with it. Some of what they have is REALLY awful,
                and some is VERY Chinese in feeling, but they have some that is quite
                lovely.

                Another place you can check for silk (dupioni which some folks on this
                list believe wouldn't have been used because of the "slubs" in the
                fabric, crepe, etc.) is Fabrics.com. Again, their prices are quite
                reasonable. I'm getting brown silk crepe to line my uchikake with for
                8.95/yd and the fabric is 59" wide!

                You can also use some kinds of rayon. While it is not period, it LOOKS
                period, depending on what you find. I have made garments out of it
                that draped beautifully and fit the descriptions I have read in many
                places. Sorry...I know that, as a Laurel I should be very concerned
                about using only period fabric...but I can't always afford it, and if I
                can find a substitute that looks good (some of the cotton prints are
                incredibly good), I say "go for it". I think that the look is more
                important than content...in this case.

                Late period upper class folks can also use cotton, linen..and hemp is
                also good. I did find out that Dharma has undyed hemp and I'm
                considering purchasing some of it to make a kosode...may try to print
                it to make it more interesting.

                Hope this all helps. I still believe that making your own will make
                you much happier and overall take less time.

                Kiri

                  Hi!!

                  Yes I did look at Thai Silks this morning--someone on this list
                  posted the link last night. Some of their stuff does look nice,
                  though as a Japanese newbie I can't tell what is too Chinese or not.
                  I did order a couple more books on Japanese garb & textiles that your
                  protege Maroe-sama recommended, so hopefully that will help learn
                  me. :) And there is a large fabric warehouse in Philly called Jo-Mar
                  that has a great selection of fabric for cheap prices; I just haven't
                  been there since the Japanese bug bit to see if they have anything
                  appropriate.

                  How difficult is it to print your own patterns on material (and where
                  do I find appropriate patterns)? The main reason I've been
                  considering modifying modern kimono is I wasn't sure where or how
                  else to get that type of patterned silk otherwise. But if it is not
                  too terribly difficult to "paint" my own designs, that would be
                  great. I did also previously find a site called www.silken-
                  treasures.com which has some really nice cotton prints for $8.50/yd,
                  but I wasn't sure if cotton was appropriate for an upper-class woman
                  (for my European persona, I almost always use upholstery brocade or
                  silky-looking brocade/jacquard). But if you think cotton prints
                  would work, than that gives me yet another option. Thanks again,

                  Genevra

                  P.S.--I won't tell the Laurel police that you used rayon . . . :P

                      Noble Cousin!

                      Greetings from Solveig! A good tea cyclopedia will generally have lots of
                      period prints illustrated in it. Mine was mostly destroyed in a flood, but
                      it is published by Tankosha. You may be able to borrow a copy through
                      interlibrary loan. The Guide To Japanese Literature has color prints of
                      fabric patterns. (Note. Despite the English title, this book is in
                      Japanese.) I have seen Japanese cotton prints for sale in the garment
                      district in Boston. Prior to the invention of the Cotton jin, cotton
                      was a luxury fabric. Ramie, Cotton, Linen, Hemp, and Silk were all used
                      in Japan during period. Chinese brocades were used in Japan in certain
                      contexts.

                      It's not the "Laurel Police" it's the "Authenticity Police" and that was
                      a gag complete with badges about twenty years ago.

                          Greetings,
                          In answer to your question, not that difficult. I did my first
                          Japanese for West Kingdom Twelfth Night this year (it's on my website
                          at www.geocities.com/wodeford - still under construction, so if you
                          find any glitches, let me know!). As I couldn't find linoleum blocks
                          at the local craft store, I ended up with a sheet of Flexi-foam (it's
                          that stuff that has somewhat replaced felt for kids crafts), drew a
                          ginko leaf design on it, cut it out with scissors and glued it to a
                          wood block. I used Createx white fabric paint and a little water,
                          applying paint to the block with a roller. The printing was done on
                          silk twill from Dharma Trading, and heat set with an iron. (It came
                          so well, I recycled the block and stamped heraldic sunbursts on the
                          cotton sheeting curtains we use in our pavilion.)

                          I know the others have posted the link to the Kyoto Costume Museum -
                          there is a textile gallery which may give you some ideas on designs.

                            Store kamon catalogue. You should understand what this thing is.
                            In the nineteen century, the emperor granted all Japanese the
                            right to have kamon. So, everyone went out and ordered kimonp with
                            kamon on them. Matsuya put together a pattern book for this purpose.
                            It has no historical significance unless you are interested in the
                            Meiji Restoration.

                            For one thing, circles surounding base patterns were rare before 1600.
                            They are pretty much stereotypical today.

Also checkout Speedball, if they're online. They're the most common producers of lilo blocks that I know of, and they make a different lino block that's softer (abnd not actually linoleum).

                                find any glitches, let me know!). As I couldn't find linoleum blocks
                                at the local craft store, I ended up with a sheet of Flexi-foam (it's
                                that stuff that has somewhat replaced felt for kids crafts), drew a
                                ginko leaf design on it, cut it out with scissors and glued it to a
                                wood block. I used Createx white fabric paint and a little water,
                                applying paint to the block with a roller. The printing was done on
                                silk twill from Dharma Trading, and heat set with an iron. (It came
                                so well, I recycled the block and stamped heraldic sunbursts on the
                                cotton sheeting curtains we use in our pavilion.)

                                I know the others have posted the link to the Kyoto Costume Museum -
                                there is a textile gallery which may give you some ideas on designs.

                                give you ideas.

                                Good luck,
