Japanese Yuzen-Birodo 天鵝絨 cut velvet of a temple by a lake with ducks, original wood frame, late Meiji Period.

Nishimura Sozaemon, the Kyoto textiles firm, invented this technique in 1868. The velvet was woven by passing the threads over fine metal wires parallel to the woof and then cut to form the pile. The precise cutting would achieve a three dimensional effect.

The first example of Yuzen-Birodo was exhibited at the Second National Industrial Exhibition in Tokyo in 1881.
