This pocket square depicts a samurai named as Yada Gorosaemon Suketake, and was made by Utagawa Kuniyoshi. He is represented fighting, although no other samurai is depicted. Samurais were not only fighters, but also intellectuals, poets, or philosophers. It belongs to the Ukiyo-e genre, which emerged in Japan in the 17th to 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.

Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861) is one of the last great masters of the ukiyo-e genre, and was mostly known for portrayals of famous samurai and legendary heroes. In his art, he was able to represent a sense of action in the samurai’s faces and behaviour, often depicted in combat. Kuniyoshi also made prints of more traditional subjects such as landscapes, or bijin-ga - a term to describe pictures of beautiful women in Japanese art.

Testimonials


Daniel Öhrstedt - Datinventory

"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.

Erik Mannby - Editor-in-chief Plaza Uomo

"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.
