About Kyoto traditional embroidery

Kyoto embroidery probably dates back to 794. Then, the new capital was established in Kyoto and a department of weaving was set up at the Imperial Court. Their beautiful fabric was further embellished with other traditional arts, such as the Yuzen dyeing technique.

By the middle of the Edo period (1600-1868) Shibori fawn spot tie-dyeing and hand embroidery were other important methods of decorating fabric. The newly wealthy merchant class favored richly embellished kimono. In addition to stitched flat silk motifs, hand wrapped gold and silver embroidery thread was applied (couched on top of the fabric) in traditional patterns to imitate the brocades worn by the aristocracy.
