Zuan refers to sketches or preliminary drafts for use in the decorative arts. This three paneled Zuan is from the late Meiji period and was originally designed for details of a kimono. We put the three together to create an interesting canvas. Kit includes an 8″ x 12″ 14 mesh mono deluxe needlepoint canvas and all the wool or pearle cotton threads needed to complete. Please indicate your thread preference in the Notes section at Checkout. If you would like to use this design as a block of many in a Build a Rug series we recommend you use silk or wool threads.
