Yuzen Dyeing (Hand-painted Yuzen)

Experience painting on handkerchiefs and eco-bags using the hand-painted Yuzen technique.

Yuzen dyeing, a dyeing technique used for kimonos, was named after Miyazaki Yuzensai, a fan painter who lived in the Gion area of Kyoto during the Edo period, who put together different techniques used from ancient times. There are two types of yuzen dyeing: hand-painted yuzen, in which patterns are drawn and dyed using brushes and bristles, and kata-yuzen, a 19th Century technique, in which colors are applied using stencils. Using the hand-painted yuzen technique you will be able to color handkerchiefs and eco-bags with patterns drawn by traditional craftsmen.
