Tokyo yuzen dyeing

About Tokyo yuzen dyeing

Tokyo yuzen dyeing began during the Edo period (1603-1868), when many dyeing artisans and painters moved from Kyoto to Edo (present-day Tokyo), bringing their skills and techniques to the capital. Many of them lived along the Sumida and Kanda rivers because of the abundant source of water necessary for dyeing. Also known as Edo yuzen, it features elegant patterns painted in subdued colors, a product of the townspeople culture of the time.
●Designated as a Traditional Craft of Japan in 1980
