<素材として主に使っている真田紐と漆について>

 

真田紐とは、戦国武将、真田幸村が刀の下げ緒や鎧兜などに用いたことから、その名がついたと言われており、江戸時代に紐を織る技術が発達しました。

真田紐は、縦糸と横糸で織りあげるため伸びることがなく、丈夫な紐に仕上がります。絹や、綿と絹の混紡の上質な糸を用いて丁寧に織りあげており、柄行、艶、風合いとも独特で美しく、それ自体が伝統工芸品として貴重なものといえます。

 

現在では主に、帯締めや、陶器、茶道具入れなどの伝統美術工芸品を入れる桐箱の結び紐として使用されています。一部は、家・個人の決められた柄があり、認証や作品の真贋鑑定に使われています。(参照:織元すみやサイト)

 

Atelier Junko S では、人間国宝や伝統文化のお家元御用達、石川県金沢市にある、創業90年あまりの「織元すみや」の真田紐を使っています。

 

とは漆の木からにじみ出る樹液で、漆器とは木などにを塗り重ねて作る工芸品です。現在では漆の木自体が希少なものとなっています。

漆は東洋特有のもので、 中でも日本のものは世界的に名高く、英語で磁器をCHINAと呼ぶのに対して、 漆器はJAPANと呼ばれるほどです。

漆器は約9000年前の縄文時代より、日常で使われてきました。

なかでも、石川県輪島市で作られている輪島塗は、漆器の最高峰といわれています。 天然木を使った天然の生漆塗りで、120以上の工程を経て、初めて輪島塗と冠することができるブランドです。工程が細分化、分業化されているため、7〜8人の職人の手を経て、ひとつの製品が仕上がるまでに1年ほどかかります。

 

Atelier Junko S. では、天然木と天然漆にこだわり、自社で、何人もの職人の手間暇をかけて作られている輪島塗「輪島塗太郎」の漆を使っています。

< About Sanada-Himo and Urushi which are mainly used as a material >

 

Sanadahimo is one of the Japanese traditional fabrics. And its name was given from Samurai family Sanada, as it has been said that developed the techniques of weaving the Ribbons in Edo period. They dressed up their armor suits and helmets of Samurai, or tied up important things to their waist with it. They are woven so close and tight that they are very thick and firm. The Ribbons are woven by silk or silk mixed with cotton and their design pattern, gloss and texture are beautiful and unique. It is valuable as a beutiful crafts tself.

 

Today, Sanadahimo is used mainly for women's kimonos and knotted ribbons that are used to wrap a paulownia box, where we keep precious art crafts such as porcelains and tea ceremony utensils.

 

Each family and individual uses a specific pattern of Sanadahimo and it also has been used for the certification and appraisal of authenticatically works (Refering to : Orimoto Sumya's site)

 

Atelier Junko S. uses "Orimoto Sumiya" Sanadahimo, which has been established 90 years ago or more in Kanazawa, Ishikawa prefecture as the Purveyor of living national treasures and lemoto ( represented as the head family of the traditional culture).

Urushi lacquer is made from the sap of the urushi tree. However, the areas today where urushi sap is actually produced are very limited. Urushi is a unique art technique that has developed across Asia. However, among all these different traditions of lacquerware across Asia's Japan has gained such a strong reputation that its designs are now simply referred to as "Japan", similar to Chinese porcelain being referred to as "China".

Urushi has been created and used in daily life in Japan since the Jomon Era approximately 9,000 years ago.

"Wajima-Nuri" in Wajima, Ishikawa prefecture has gained worldwide recognition for its beauty and durability. The process of producing typical wooden urushi lacquerware has over 120 processes. It's hand-made and processed by 7-8 artisan craftsmen. Each artisan craftsmen has different functions and jobs to complete the item. Even a small object like a bowl takes a year to make.

And when the item is already finished and ready to display, we call it "Wajima-nuri". It's one of a kind and different from any other urushi.

 

Atelier Junko S. uses “Wajima Nuritaro”'s Wajima-nuri which is renowned for using all-natural Urushi wood and Urushi lacquer ware handcrafted and perfected by in-house artisans.
