You might be familiar with the significance of gift-giving in Japanese culture, but perhaps you haven't seen fukusa, the elaborate silk textiles used to drape Edo-period gifts. Thanks to a recent donation from the Peter and Beverly Sinton Japanese Gift and Altar Cover collection, now you can! Fukusa were often embellished with intricate embroidery, weaving, and dyeing techniques, becoming art pieces in their own right. Painting with Thread: The Art and Culture of Fukusa centers nature-inspired fukusa "related to the plants and scenes familiar within Portland Japanese Garden." by Lindsay Costello
