What you'll do

Our life of countryside is connected deeply with nature. Our village is surrounded by many cypresses and we use it for dyeing. Ancient Japanese people made our kimono by our selves in the house. They didn't use special color. They went to the mountain and pick up natural leaves and they dyed with it. We dye stall with natural dyeing like an ancient Japanese people. We make color from cypress it grows up in our village. And we make a pattern with Japanese traditional technique "Itazime-shibori". The technique has used since 1300years ago. I prepare many shapes of woods like circle and square etc. You can choose the shape and design what pattern you make. And we dye to make the pattern. When you finish and open your stall, you can find beautiful color and pattern. When you put on the stall in your country, You will remember our mountain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdLh1gxbapI -------- How to make 1. Explain the dyeing process. 2.

My life is in Art and Nature. I was born and grow up in the Japanese countryside. My house was surrounded by beautiful nature and artworks of my father. I studied dyeing at Art University and I designed fashion textile. I came back to the countryside and start teaching dyeing with natural leaves. I hope guests stay and experience the background on which products are made. The stall dyed with familiar plants is a color that can only be produced here. Every time you wear it, the landscape of Japan will come back. I want you to feel the richness of incorporating products made into your life.
