Textiles

Textile design, including brightly patterned silks and dyeing techniques such as yuzen-zome, is an important part of Japan's kimono culture. Japanese textiles also feature in a wide range of other craft items - furoshiki cloths, noren curtains - many of which are still very popular today. We'll explore both the history and future potential of textiles in Japan with our guest, textile designer Reiko Sudo.
