Yumeji TAKEHISA (1884-1934)

Yumeji Takehisa was a Japanese poet and painter and he was well known for his Nihonga paintings. He also designed unique and dynamic patterns for products like furoshiki and, apart from his influence on manga artists, he is seen as a pioneer of Japanese graphic design.


Yamada sen-i was established in 1937 as a manufacturer of furoshiki. The company's furoshiki brand is “MUSUBI” which is derived from from “born(生す/musu)” and “beauty(美/bi)” in Japanese. “MUSUBI” also means “a knot” and “to tie”.
