Kiyoto Suzuta

Producing textiles using a technique called mokuhanzuri sarasa (printed cotton) where woodblocks and paper stencils are used. My grandfather, Teruji Suzuta, who for many years studied and clarified Nabeshima sarasa that had been discontinued in Saga and made modern sarasa patterns based on his sketches, named this dyeing technique.
I myself make designs based on sketches and aim to bring out the charm of sarasa that can only be made with woodblocks and paper stencils.
