The Ginkgo Leaf is a favorite motif of the Arts and Crafts movement, and as a fellow transplant from Japan, Yoshiko Yamamoto has always felt a special bond with it. Designed exclusively for Cooper’s Cottage Lace, Ginkgo Leaf is framed with a delicate lattice border. Finished in Natural White. Custom shortening available.
Yoshiko Yamamoto Born and raised in Tokyo, Yoshiko Yamamoto first studied sculpture at Tama Art University in Japan, and after moving to California, studied classical music and modern Japanese history at the University of California, Berkeley. In 1996, she founded The Arts & Crafts Press with her husband, Bruce Smith, and taught herself the crafts of letterpress and block printing. For her limited edition prints, Yoshiko uses the flora and fauna she finds either in America or Japan – anything from fir trees to heron, koi fish, or crickets, and creates them using up to 20 blocks, each with a different color. She resides in a small coastal town in Washington.
Using the highest quality 100% cotton Madras weave, this motif has been transformed into beautiful curtains that grant privacy while allowing the maximum amount of light. The designs are clean and uncluttered and will delightfully accent any Bungalow, Stockbroker Tudor or Dutch Colonial.
