Shishu Restoration Studio

Featured on Select Quilt Festival Japan Tours vacation packages.

The Kyoto Shishu Restoration Studio is dedicated to repairing embroidery and traditional Japanese cloth pieces. The Studio is operated by Wakosha, a cleaning company that specializes in Kimono for Buddhist monks and restoring traditional embroidery works. Due to the fragile nature of aged embroidery and lack of professional restoration services, the studio receives up to 140 projects in need of repairs per year. The embroidery that comes through the doors are sometimes 100, 200, and even up to 300 years old. Therefore, the Kyoto Embroidery Restoration Studio employs only skilled embroidery specialists to restore the works in order to bring them back to life. These expert craftsmen work tirelessly using traditional techniques and their vast experience to bring the works back to their former glory. The restoration studio even handles some of the equipment used for Kyoto's Gion Festival.
