By the 1920s, Japan was thoroughly open to the Western world, and textile designers had absorbed the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles into a charming mix with traditional Taisho-era designs. Here's a collection of chic patterns that include street lights, bridges and other aspects of modern cityscapes, as well as depictions of the 'modern girl,' the liberated woman of the twentieth century. Images are 1600 x 1600 (pixels) and saved as a high quality 350 DPI jpg.
