Art History

Japanese

In Edo Japan (1615–1868), citizens of all classes wore the kimono, a simple T-shaped robe with no pockets. For carrying small essentials, ingeniously constructed containers were suspended on cords from the kimono’s waist sash.

 

Description

In Edo Japan (1615–1868), stacked, nested boxes, called inro, were specifically designed to hold medicine or ink seals. Often made of lavishly decorated lacquer, these costly and beautiful inro (primarily used by men) became essential fashion accessories that also acted as markers of wealth. Our captivating scarf design is adapted from the lacquered medallions on a nineteenth-century inro in the Museum’s collection. Available in red or black/gold. Silk crêpe de chine. Imported. 64” x 18”.
