A gorgeous all-occasion notecard set featuring cooking and gardening design images from ten stunning fabric applique projects by extraordinary post-WWII Japanese textile artist Ayako Miyawaki.

This simple yet elegant notecard and envelope set is packaged in a luxurious keepsake box with a removable bellyband, making it the perfect gift for artists or crafters. Each of the ten notecards features a unique fabric applique design from the work of Ayako Miyawaki, who used scraps of handwoven cloth and her keen eye for patterns and textures to elevate everyday objects into stunning textile art.

From home and garden imagery ranging from flowers, to fruit, to just-pulled garlic, these blank-interior notecards make the perfect greeting card for any occasion, as well as the ideal accompaniment for any gift. This sophisticated set is accompanied by an insert with an artist statement, celebrating this previously un-sung woman artist.

Japanese textile artist Ayako Miyawaki (1905Ð1995) found beauty in the everyday world around her. Miyawaki utilized scraps of textile and twine to create extraordinary applique compositions.
