Textile artisans create the intricate designs and colors of kimono with a silk-dyeing technique called yuzen. The particular yuzen method unique to this region of Japan, called Kaga-yuzen, developed over three centuries ago and is notable for its striking and seemingly glossy images of nature using only five colors: dark red, ochre, grass-green, indigo and royal purple.
Learn how to blend these pigments together directly on cloth by coloring a traditional design of your choice.
We will also frame (15 cm2) and mail your work to you. Please allow two months for delivery.
Kimono rentals are also available for up to ten people, ¥4400 each, for heights of 140 – 170 cm (4’7” – 5’7”).
Kimono fitting is ¥1300.
