Yôkyô Confronting The Tiger, by Utagawa Kuniyoshi, 1843 - 1847

  • 100% Silk

  • Designed and Printed in England
  • 42cm x 42cm

The depiction of tigers in Japanese prints usually attributes to them a menacing and ferocious attitude, such as seen here - the tiger is about to jump over a raging torrent to attack an elderly man. His young daughter intervenes, placing herself between the oversized tiger and her father. The tiger recognises the girl's self-sacrifice and rewards her filial piety by sparing both of them.

Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798- 1861) was 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.

When you look at the images of the pocket squares you imagine them to be good. But when you hold it in your hands and see the intricate details you’re just blown away. Can’t recommend enough. Absolutely a little slice of luxury. Zak - United Kingdom

I just took delivery of my first Rampley pocket square and I have to say I'm absolutely thrilled. The quality is far superior to any other pocket squares that I own. The complimentary collar stays were a nice gesture, too. First rate company, first rate product. Trevor - Canada

I have ordered several products from Rampley and Co and in each instance it has been an absolute pleasure. The pocket squares that I have are of unmatched quality with exceptional colour, design and cloth. Even though I am located in Sydney, the customer service (particularly Emily) has been flawless and willing to ‘go the extra mile’. The shipping is very prompt and well presented.


Ben Brewster - The Cuff

Over the past couple years I've become more cognizant of the spark that a well-chosen pocket square can add to tailoring, and the exceptional designs from Rampley & Co are a big reason why. The classic art pictured on each square is undoubtedly the brand's signature appeal, but even smaller details like intricate border patterns and hand-rolled edges give each piece a one-of-a-kind feel.

Linus Norrbom - Menswear Influencer

From a person that feels naked without a pocket square in the chest pocket of my jacket, I can honestly say that Rampley & Co. have changed the way I look upon pocket squares. It is truly a great joy wear a piece of art in your pocket. They feature carefully selected artwork motifs, beautifully printed on high-quality silk and well handcrafted with nice hand-rolled edges.

Jamie Azzopardi - Celebrity Stylist

For the past couple of years I have followed the journey of Rampley & Co and I must say I am such a fan of their work. Their attention to details, fine British construction and ability to uniquely collaborate with an array of businesses, both fashion and art based, not only pulls at my heartstrings, but as a stylist and lifestyle blogger, gives me sincere hope that art and fashion do have a mainstream future together.
