This event has ended.

This exhibition of graduation work shows designs that use the Yuzen dyeing method and Nishijin textiles: both aspects of the Kyoto textile industry. After the development of the Japanese light industry following the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895), there was a need to respond to the demand for dyeing and textiles in Kyoto. Purchases came from within the arts and crafts research society from textile industry figures such as Sozaemon Nishimura (Chiso) and Shinshichi Iida (Takashimaya) after they had submitted design briefs and exchanged ideas. An opportunity to enjoy a walk through the magnificence of Kyoto’s textile industry and the world of costume designs.
