ABSTRACT
The article discusses the work of Mikiko Yatani, weaver of paper, and her daughter, Sachiko Yatani, weaver of grasses, both from Japan. Mikiko's work is part of the tradition of shi-fu nuno, or paper fabric, commonly worn by the very poor during the Edo to Meiji periods in 1852-1912. Sachiko's work grew out of a dissatisfaction with working with the chemical dyes used in screenprinting on fabric and with mass production. She weaves various grasses including choma, or ramie, and kuzu, or arrowroot.
