About us

We have been making shibori products and creations since 1940 and opened this museum in 2001 with aims to protect and pass down the knowledge of this traditional dyeing technique through generations.

The technique joined with the traditional culture of Kyoto and gave birth to Kyo-Kanoko-Shibori. Even today, new shibori techniques are being developed. We will continue to make creations with its unique three-dimensional pattern and creative sense.
