Kaga Yuzen ATELIER HISATSUNE
Kaga Yuzen is best known for its kimonos on fabric, but we wanted them to be more familiar to our customers--thus creating lamps, screens, plates, tumblers--for daily use, utilizing all sorts of materials such as wood, glass and gold leaf. This way, we hoped the Kaga Yuzen to be much better acquainted to all.
Handpainted Kaga Yuzen Super Organza
Elegant designs using the Kaga Yuzen dyeing techniques are used on "Super Organza", an ultralight, ethereal fabric. By overlapping the Kaga Yuzen patterns, excellent senses of luster, transparency and profundity --evoking water sureface-- are achieved, creating an elegant atmosphere.
