Through a harmonious collaboration with Japanese artist, Katsutoshi Yuasa, Black Edition have embarked on an exploration of time-honoured Japanese printmaking practises where traditional and contemporary techniques intertwine. Using digital images curated from his own camera, Katsutoshi creates intricate woodcut prints methodically crafted with small carving tools. Once complete, he uses an entirely manual printing method to create his artwork. Abstract stories and landscapes from Katsutoshi Yuasa’s collection are reimagined in a rich anthology of luxury fabrics. Mizumi sees colourful, contemporary designs embodied with textural sensation adorn opulent velvets, sophisticated linens and indulgent jacquard weaves.
