home > Arimatsu Shibori × Tsugumono
For more than 400 years, Arimatsu Shibori tie-dyeing has been practiced in and around the Arimatsu area of the city of Nagoya in Aichi Prefecture. Techniques such as rolling, tying, and folding are employed to make different designs, which are known for their beautiful patterning and subtle dimensional effects. Far surpassing the many other places in the world where tie-dyeing is practiced, Arimatsu, it is said, has more than 100 traditional designs.
Diverse beauty is created by changing or varying the shibori techniques. Different “wrinkles” and “folds” create distinctive dimensional effects. To share the charm of Arimatsu craft products with more people, Tsugumono has teamed up with Arimatsu tie-dye creators to develop new products.
Each using their own special techniques, six creators of Arimatsu Shibori created Arimatsu Scarf designs on linen, a fabric known for its superior touch and breathability. The finished designs are a fusion of tradition and innovation.
