A Book About Japanese Rugs

Recently I've been working on the translation of a book about Ako dantsu, a type of handwoven cotton rug from the coast of Hyogo Prefecture in Japan. The book is being published to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Naka Kojima, who founded the industry in an era when women rarely played such prominent roles in the business world. I'll post more information about the book when it's available! My involvement in the project stemmed from a translation on the same topic I did for Subsequence magazine last year, which you can read here.
