About Nishijin Ori Brocade
Nishijin Ori brocade is a yarn-dyed textile produced in Nishijin, Kyoto.
It has a long history, dating back to the Heian period (794-1185), and is characterized by the use of beautifully dyed threads and patterns woven using a variety of techniques.
Because they are produced in small quantities in a wide variety, they are highly scarce and valuable fabrics that can be used for a long time, passing from one generation to the next.
