Made in Japan
The Kyo-yuzen dyeing method was born in the Genroku Era of about 300 years ago. It is one of Japan's unique technologies developed for creating colorful, picturesque patterns.
Kyo-yuzen is characterized by drawings of beautiful bird & flower patterns and landscape patterns.
Edo-komon was the Edo era (17-19C) traditional pattern used only for the samurai's ceremonial attire in the Edo era (17-19C). Overtime, this pattern came into use throughout the general population.
