In the Edo period (1688-1704), Yuzen Miyazaki was a famous painter of folding fans in Kyoto. The “Yuzen” technique takes his name and is used in creating a novel “kosode” (a typical short sleave garment) using a dye which involves free drawing of refined and brilliant patterns, much like a fan. This dyeing process can employ hand-screen printing as well as dyeing. (* the value or weight of the silk thread - a larger number means better quality)
