Characteristic

Possibilities other than Kimono

The production of Kaga Yuzen is a division of labor divided into more than a dozen processes, including the creation of designs, preliminary sketches, glue placement, coloring, and ground dyeing.

For this reason, many craftsmen are generally involved in the production.

I, however, create all the processes by myself.

In particular, I focus on the expression of blurring, which is a characteristic of Kaga Yuzen, and pursue my technique.

For Customers

The luxury of Kaga Yuzen's unique blur

Today, there are fewer and fewer opportunities to wear kimonos in Japan.

However, it would be a shame to lose the Kaga Yuzen technique.

In order to preserve the traditional technique that has lasted for 500 years, I am challenging myself to create products other than kimonos.

Please take a look at my products.
