90 Silk Chirimen Yuzen Dyeing No.13 (Heavy weight)
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. The Yuzen method includes etching paint using drops of acidic persimmon juice and a paper pattern. Yuzen can also be used to decorate sliding doors, adding colours one by one.
