Would you like to experience dyeing at a long-established workshop founded in 1882? This workshop has been the cornerstone of Japan's kimono industry through its dyeing expertise.

 

Create a one-of-a-kind stole using Tokyo's unique dyeing method, Edo Sarasa, which has a long history. This rare opportunity allows you to learn about the history and culture of Edo Sarasa while making your very own original stole. This experience is exclusively available at Tomita Sen Kogei (Dyeing Studio) in Japan.

 

Dyeing Experience for Silk Stoles (Worth ¥25,000)

 

① Choose a pattern and its colors

You can choose from four stole patterns: Karahana Yoko-dan, Karahana, Nadeshiko, and Flowers and Birds. Decide on the colors in consultation with the artisans at the workshop.

 

② Experience begins

Place a pattern template on the silk stole. Absorb an appropriate amount of dye mixed with paste into a special round brush, and apply it with light pressure. Applying too much pressure can cause bleeding. Brush with light pressure only.

 

③ Factory Tour

After brushing all the colors, you will tour the workshop with an artisan. Your visit to this historically rich workshop will leave a lasting impression. In this plan, the artisans handle the steaming, washing, and drying processes.

 

If you wish to perform all the steps yourself, please contact us.

 

④ Watch a video
