International Dyeing Gallery

International Dyeing Gallery

The International Dyeing Gallery is the only one of its kind in Japan and is located in the traditional arts and crafts village of Asahikawa in Hokkaido. Senshoku-hin (Dyed textiles, fabric) from around the world, as well as textile crafts from all over Japan have been collected for this 5000 piece exhibit. Each item has detailed description regarding the materials and techniques used, as well as how each item was used in daily life.

Within the exhibit, approximately 200 pieces belong to the Collection Exhibition" with changing themes every year. By changing themes, visitors are able to see the same textiles in a different light.

While visitors view textiles from various parts of Japan, the natural dye and hand weaving processes can be studied to appreciate the techniques and perfection of the dyeing process.

The international exhibit includes works from Europe and India, Southeast Asia's Kasuri (Splashed pattern), Persian and Turkish Jyutan (Carpets), Chinese Shishu (Embroidery) and showcases textiles specific to each region.
