Kesa: ‘Patchwork’ Buddhist Monks’ Robes in Japan, from Austere to Luxurious
"Kesa" are among the earliest documented articles of clothing in Japan, and are made of a wide variety of materials, ranging from monochrome bast fiber to sumptuous imported gold brocade. They served as a vehicle for both the transmission of Buddhism, and of luxury textiles to Japan from the Asian mainland. Asian Art Specialist Alan Kennedy’s talk will survey kesa from its earliest history to modern times.
