INTRODUCTION. 



You have, doubtless, often beard it remarked that the really good produc- 
tions of Japan seldom find their way into the retail stores of America. This 
particularly applies to Hand Made Embroidery and the reason is not far to seek. 

Between the time the finished article leaves the workman's hands in Japan 
and the time it reaches the Retail Store in America it has to pass, in the usual course 
of business, through the hands of many middlemen. Each separate handling means, 
of course, an additional charge to the cost so that by the time it reaches the retailer 
the price of the article is enormously increased and it consequently has to be sold at 
a figure which, relative to the original cost, is exorbitant. 

To eliminate those intermediate profits of the middlemen by putting within 

your reach the really good and desirable work of tins country at a minimum cost 

is the object of this booklet. Since all the work we furnish is made by our own 
embroiderers vou cannot eliminate any further profits and as the profits we charge 
are based on no credits : consequently no losses, no bookkeeping and low expenses 
vou will readily see that vou have reached the fountain head oi supply and cannot 
reasonably expect to pay less. 

The few illustrations we show are but suggestions of the work we are 
prepared to undertake. We are equipped to execute orders for SliVifliilg of the 
nature of Hand Made Embroidery a"d will do the work so well and cheaply as to 
astonish you. Our embroiderers are all skilled workers and are under the 
Supervision Of American experts which ensures your order getting intelligent atten- 
tion. We are prepared to undertake anything from ordinary embroidery to the 
very finest work and it will take but a trial order to convince you that what we 
claim is no idle boast. 

OUR GUARANTEE GOES WITH EVERY ORDER WE EXECUTE 
AND IF THE GOODS ARE NOT AS GOOD AS REPRESENTED 
OR AS GOOD AS YOU EXPECTED YOU CAN SEND THEM 
BACK AND WE SHALL REFUND THE MONEY YOU PAID US. 

We solicit your enquiries relative to the cost etc. of any embroidery ideas 
vou may think of having carried out and will gladly submit samples of material, 
sketches, designs or photographs of anything you may desire. 

As the work of catalogue illustrating is still in its infancy in Japan we have 
not been able to do justice to the goods we reproduce. In every instance the actual 
work is better than the illustrations would indicate.

HAND EMBROIDERED WAIST PATTERNS 

Each Waist Pattern contains sufficient material to make Waist in any style for any size person. The pattern 
comprises embroidery on front with a piece each for the collar and two cuffs, as shown in the illustrations. 

The material of which we make up these patterns is the best of its kind. Where we quote on more than one 
Quality the difference is in fineness or sbeerness. 

Embroidery is graded according to the value of the material to which it is applied. The "poorest" embroi- 
dery we apply to anything is good, while on the more expensive material it is of a very high class.

PARAGON EMBROIDERY CO., P. 0. BOX 81, YOKOHAMA, JAPAN. 

HAND EMBROIDERED SILK KIMONOS AND DRESSING JACKETS . 

In the United States these have become, of late years, so rmieh of a necessity as a Negligee Garment that they 
require no recommendation. 

Our Kimonos are all made to give practical service and instead of being, as Kimonos so often are, an article to 
admire but of little use for wear, what we offer <s a happy combination of utility and beauty. 

CONSTRUCTION. Each garment as well as having an inside lining of sill: is also made with a heavy 
cotton interlining which gives body to the Kimono as well as enhances its wearing properties. The silk we use, both 
outside and lining, is of extra good quality. In no instance do we put inferior or second grade silk into the construc- 
tion of our garments. 

EMBROIDERY On the lowest priced garments the embroidery is of a good grade while to the higher 
priced ones we apply work that is, in every sense ot the term, extra good. 

COLOR. We can furnish any color you wish and if you send sample of the shade wanted will match it 
exactly. The colors most in demand are : White, Light Blue, Pink, Lavender, Old Rose. Copenhagen, Nile Green, Navy, 
Red, Gray and Black. The embroidery can be applied in any desired color. If you have no decided preference, leave it 
to us. Long experience has taught us the combinations which show up to best advantage. 

SHADED KIMONOS are dyed from a light color at the top, gradually shading down to deeper and darker 
color at the bottom. Thus, a Kimono which is Light Pink at the top shades down to Deep Rose at the bottom ; or a 
Light Blue at top becomes a Dark Blue or Copenhagen at bottom.

PARAGON EMBROIDERY CO., P. 0. BOX 81, YOKOHAMA, JAPAN. 



COTTON CRAPE KIMONOS AND DRESSING JACKETS . 

Japanese Cotton Crape has, by virtue of its excellent wearing and washing qualities, become so popular in 
the United States of late years that the looms of this country are taxed to their utmost to meet the demand. This fabric 
is entirely made by hand; the crepy effect being obtained by hand-twisting each thread. Successive washings only 
tend to increase the crepy effect— the more the material is washed the crepier it becomes. 



We furnish Cotton Crape in three grades, as follows : — 
Wo. 1 GRADE is of finely 'woven, beautiful appearing texture in mercerised thread. Though it 
has a delicate, silky appearance it nevertheless is tough in tensile strength and gives ex- 
cellent wear. 

No. 2 GRADE is a slightly heavier appearing texture than No. 1 but has also a fine soft finish with 

splendid wearing qualities. 
No. 3 GRADE is heavier and stronger looking than the No. 1 and 2 and wears so well that it is 

popularly described as " wearing like iron." 

Any of the above grades can be furnished in any of the following colors : 

WHITE, LIGHT BLUE, CADET BLUE, PINK, OLD ROSE, LAVENDER AND GREEN. 

The embroidery on these, as on everything else we offer, is entirely hand made.

HAND EMBROIDERED SATIN CRAPE WEDDING GOWNS. 



If it were more generally known how exquisitely beautiful the really good in Japanese 
Embroidery can be it would cause no surprise to learn that it is becoming an ever-increasing vogue 
for American Brides to have their Wedding Gowns embroidered by hand in Japan. 

The looms of this country produce a beautiful Satin Crape which is ideally suited to the require- 
ments of a Wedding Robe. Beside being of lovely texture it has just that rich lustre and satin sheen 
which stamps the Wedding Gown as being the realisation of ones heart's desire. 

To this material we can apply any design of embroidery you may wish. We can furnish the Robes 
in any of the three designs shown on the opposite page or we can apply any design of embroidery you may 
send us. Should none of the designs shown suit you or if you have no ideas you wish carried out we 
shall be glad to prepare further designs in accordance with any suggestions you may send. Unfortunately, 
our artists, in illustrating, cannot do justice to the excellence of the work we are producing, but you take 
no chances in ordering — the embroidery is the richest, and at; the same time daintiest, work you 
can imagine. 

The Gowns are, of course, not made up. We furnish sufficient material to make them with trains 
and the embroidery is applied so that it can be used as shown in the illustrations.
