This event has ended.

Nishijin-ori woven textiles are widely used in the production of kimono and obi sashes. The weaving industry in Kyoto originated between the 5th and 6th centuries. The name Nishijin came from the Nishijin district in Kyoto, where many weavers established their workshops after the end of Onin War (1467–1477). Kinran, or gold brocade, is a technique that was brought over from China in the sixteenth century, incorporating gold leaf and gold thread.
A great opportunity to see these traditional aesthetic textiles.
