I’ve been making Kimono with Tsujigahana shibori tequnique for 18 years. Tsujigahana is one of the methods for dyeing pictorial patterns based on tie-dyeing. It is often referred to as “illusionary dyeing” as it died out in the course of time as a consequence of the development of Yuzen-dyeing. We have created the new Tsujigahana with modern taste using the ancient techniques. The basis of Tsujigahana is tie-dyeing for dyeing in different colors. Dye is prevented from penetrating textiles by the presser of squeezing, and we make difference in colors and pictorial devices by repeating it. It would be great if you would get more interested in Tsujigahana or Tie-dyeing technique through this experience.
