Kaga Yuzen


Yuzen is a dyeing technique in which beautiful designs are painted onto cloth by the skillful use of starch and paper patterns. Kaga-yuzen evolved in the city of Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture. The technique is identical to that of Kyo-yuzen in Kyoto, but is characterized by a predominance of dark red, indigo and purple as base colors. It also makes skillful use of color gradations and designs, and patterns and colors are more geometric than Kyo-yuzen. Kaga-yuzen was designated a traditional Japanese craft in 1975.
