Kyo-nui: Kyoto Embroidery

August 07, 2016

Embroidery is a type of decorating technique on fabric in which motifs are expressed with a needle and a variety of colorful threads. The technique is one of the most significant in the history of dyeing and textiles in Japan. When added on dyed kimono or fabric, embroidery enriches the luxuriousness of the work.

Kyo-nui is realized with sophisticated design and skilled technique using silk, gold or silver threads on silk or hemp fabric. It is an artistic work made possible through the overall composition, color combination of threads, and techniques of needlework. All of these make a unique expression possible for tasteful works.
