It’s been a while since I posted the progress of this project. The project has been going on but it’s me to blame not updating you about it. I’m sorry.
Based upon my feedback, Mr. Katsuyama made the second medashi, this time without gold thread. The pink color is gone, too. Only bluish colors.
Maybe less glamourous without gold thread, but the subtle gradation of the blue tones is more apparent, emphasizing the purity of the silk thread that Mr. Katsuyama produced.
Thank you, Mr. Katsuyama, for your excellent choice of the colors. I heard that it is rare that you make two medashis for one obi. I really appreciate your willing to go the extra mile to make this project a success.
