Kyoto Shibori Museum | Rare Beautiful Works of Shibori

Kyoto Shibori Work Shop and Museum is a museum that focuses on the art of shibori, or dyeing. With over 1,300 years of history with shibori, Japan treasures this method of dyeing cloths and the Kyoto Shobori Work Shop and Museum preserves these methods by exhibiting beautiful works of shibori as well as passing on knowledge and skills the later generations to keep the art of shibori alive. Shibori is used to dye cloths into beautifully colored and designed scarves and kimonos. Shibori has many different technical methods, ranging from dotted designs and floral designs to more complicated designs using needles and threads to achieve more preciseness.

Shibori dyeing is a very precise, technical skill requiring many years of work to perfect. Through the years we have lost many of our talented craftsmen and is becoming difficult to keep the tradition and talent going. At the Kyoto Shibori Work Shop and Museum, you can witness the rare beautiful works of art and even participate in shibori classes to create your own works of art.

The Kyoto Shibori Museum also offers a great range of classes and workshops to learn more about the dyeing process. Some of their workshops include:

  1. Itajime shibori scarf class: A unique pattern born by dyeing fabrics with plates. A Traditional technique from the Nara era.
  2. Kyo-arashi shibori scarf class: Multi-step process to Fold, roll, and narrow down the fabric to produce beautiful color combinations and patterns.
  3. Fukusa wrapping cloth class: Method to design involving wrapping silk fabric with beautiful patterns and dyes.
