What is Okunizome? The History of Okunizome The Artisan's Skill Kimono and Living Reference Material Okunizome Video Files Glossary

We have been continuing to digitally archive an extensive collection of items such as bedding and children’s kimono from the Ishikawa region made out of Kaga Okunizome from the latter part of the Edo period until the beginning of the Showa period. Currently, all 20,000 items are being archived.

The old times of mass production, mass consumption are over. It is our hope to revive the emotion and artistry which went into the making the unique textures and patterns of okunizome.
