This print, by Katsushika Hokusai, depicts a mystical Buddhist bird (called Karyōbinga in Japanese) which is characterised by a bird's torso and a female human head. She is playing a flute, and the legend says that one can never tire of listening to the creature's heavenly music. It belongs to the Ukiyo-e genre, which emerged in Japan in the 17th through 19th centuries. It means pictures of the floating world. Different techniques were used, such as manual print on hand-made paper using woodblocks, or more classic paintings. The subjects were wide, but included female figures, landscapes, and sumo wrestlers and were often inspired by legends.

Katsushika Hokusai (1760- 1849), known as Hokusai, was a Japanese artist widely known for The Great Wave off Kanagawa. He belonged to the ukiyo-e genre, but is responsible for its evolution from arts focused on courtesans, samurais, and actors, to a much broader genre, including landscapes, plants, and animals. To this day, Hokusai is considered one of the greatest masters in the history of art, producing over 30 000 works of arts throughout his career.

The colours of this pocket square are vibrant, while the simple border puts the focus on the painting itself.

"I was eyeing the Rampley pocket squares for quite a while and was thinking that the idea of turning classic art into pocket squares was quite brilliant and interesting.

When I finally had the chance to see the products in person I was blown away by the rich details in the prints. What you don't realise from the pictures is that the print is actually incredibly detailed even on the back of the square. This results in making it much easier to…" click to read full review.

"My line of work gives me a pretty unique chance of studying finely crafted clothing and accessories and if pressed, I can roll a decent hand rolled edge myself. Rampley & Co’s products are as good as it gets where handwork is considered. The pocket squares I own so far are on the same level, or better than, pocket squares that usually retail for several times the price that Rampley & Co charge. The silk is finely woven and neither too thick to become bulky in ones pocket, nor is it..." click to read full review.
