Previously unpublished, the collection is made up not of kimonos or monks' kesa robes, but of uchishiki, beautiful and intricate Buddhist altar covers. Like kesa, they were made from lengths of sumptuous silk, most often donated to the temple. With elaborate polychrome decoration, highlighted by gold or silver thread, uchishiki stand out as testaments to the extraordinary skill of Kyoto weavers.
