Do you know Nishijin Textile?

It’s one of the most famous traditional handicrafts in Kyoto, a city which has led Japanese handicrafts over 1000 years as the capital of traditional culture.

Among over 20 processes of Nishjin Textile products, the first design is the most essential part. Every product, mostly kimono obi-belt, of this craft has its own design painted by hand.

Now, we hold a special exhibition featuring one of those designers, Mr. Hamamatsu, who has engaged in Nishijin Textile over 30 years. Don’t miss his outstanding skills and works.
