Gyotaku fish rubbings, original artwork and homewares.

The Fish Tailor of Pittenweem creates original gyotaku fish rubbings and original art work. Incorporating the ancient Japanese method of recording a fisherman’s catch using locally caught East Neuk fish. These images are then reproduced on textiles as linen tea towels, cushions and printed on a co-ordinated range of placemats and coasters.
Colours and inspiration are absorbed from the coastline, harbours and beaches around the Fish Tailor’s studio in Pittenweem, where the technique is perfected.
