Kaga-Yuzen Kimono Center

Kaga-Yuzen Kimono Center

Rice paste made of steamed rice powder is squeezed from a tube to draw lines according to the sketch. This process, called “Itome-nori,” creates a barrier that prevents dyestuffs from spreading to other areas. The white lines that appear after the rice paste is washed out of the cloth complement the color and pattern of the kimono and give a sense of perspective to the design. This process greatly influences the appearance of the finished kimono.
