Japanese Edo kites take high-flying paper creations to unprecedented artistic heights. They feature stunning graphic designs of amazingly dynamic impact, in themes typically having to do with stalwart warriors or symbols of good luck. Each and every Edo kite is a work by one of Japan’s foremost Edo kitemaker, Tetsuya Kishida, for the original hand paintings and meticulously crafted framework.

 

We offer Edo kite graphic sheets (without the kite framework) perfect for framing as a decorative addition to your interiors <here>.
