Image Statement: One of the earliest memories connected to cloth was my lingering over the gorgeousness of High Episcopalian vestments. Both of the papers used here are kozo, the top one delicate and fragile, the bottom one thick and treated with persimmon dye and liquid iron. The contrast interested me, along with a possible metaphor about the Church experience.
