Kyoto is a city where traditions live on. As the former imperial residence, Kyoto attracted important artists, craftspeople and scholars for over a thousand years. Its inspiring atmosphere of tradition and culture, contemplation and dignity generated great works, which became famous far beyond Japan. One of the bearers of Kyoto’s artistic heritage is Chiso, the leading yūzen kimono atelier founded in 1555. Elaborate silk kimonos created for the imperial court established the exceptional reputation of the Chiso company. The artists at Chiso have developed a custom design for Montblanc, uniting the centuries-old Chiso tradition with another renowned Japanese craft: maki-e lacquer. Montblanc is celebrating this remarkable collaboration for the second time with the Meisterstück Maki-e Calligraphy Tribute to Kyoto Fine Craftsmanship Limited Edition 88.
