About Edo Yuzen

"Yuzen" is one of the most famous kind of dyeing techniques of Kimono. It was established about 400 years ago (in Edo era).
Together with "Kyo Yuzen" and "Kaga Yuzen," Tokyo Yuzen is known as a representative of Yuzen dyeing. It is also called "Tokyo Tegaki Yuzen" or "Edo Yuzen," communicating the elegant dye culture enjoyed by the upper class in the Edo era to the present age.
The characteristics of "Tegaki Yuzen" are its hand paintings and picturesque patterns. They require the work of highly skilled craftsmen with both a good technical training and a refined artistic sense.
This time We will offer products which are based on those skill at affordable prices.
