Exhibition Runs 3 - 20th July
Tuesday - Saturday 10am - 5pm
Visit Kimono House this winter to discover the art of Japanese resist-dyed textiles and how they are produced. See shibori cloth from the centuries-old cotton dyeing houses of Arimatsu along the Tokaido Highway and exotic silks from the artisans of Kyoto.
Included in the exhibition are vintage garments and bolts of cloth displayed alongside tools of the trade and samples of the resist-dyeing process.
Inspired by the exhibition, a limited collection of contemporary shibori textile accessories selected from the studios of Kyoto designers will also be available in the Kimono House shop throughout the Melbourne winter months.
