2015 Serizawa Desktop Calendar
Keisuke Serizawa was a Japanese textile designer. He began producing his famous calendars in 1946 during the occupation of Japan. These calendars quickly gained popularity amongst U.S. Officers and their wives to send back home as gifts. In 1956, Serizawa was designated a Living National Treasure for his katazome stencil dyeing technique by the Japanese government. He continued to create new calendars each year until he passed away in 1985. Today his family continues to produce calendars with his existing patterns.
