The Artist and Technique

Itchiku Kubota made his artistic Kimono inspired by Tsujigahana, a long lost XVIth century technique he spent 30 years re-inventing. By combining his own vision with the Tsujigahana technique, he created the “Itchiku Tsujigahana”.

One hundred and four of his most spectacular creations can be seen all year long in the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum and on this website.
