“Mardley-zome” is a dyeing technique in which varied patterns are created through stirring colored pastes.
By applying the special technique of ladling used in suminagashi dyeing which was developed in the Meiji period (1868-1912), the art of transferring marbled paste dyes onto fabric was born in the Taishō period (1912-26).
