Nagoya Yuzen (dyeing)
The patterns of Nagoya yuzen that reflect the local character of the Nagoya district have always been loved together with its subdued taste.
In today's busy life, demand for Japanese clothes, or kimono,
is declining year by year, but beauty and elegance survive and enrich our lifestyle.
In order to hand down this beauty to future generations,
Nagoya yuzen industry is making an aggressive effort to train successors and develop new products under the leadership of the cooperatives Association.
