Taku Harada

photo Taku Harada

I want to make classic and modern pieces with Edo-toki patterns* drawn with pigments and icchinzome** using yuzen hand-painting techniques. * Patterns of plants and flowers drawn in the late Edo period mainly used for womens' formal kimonos ** A dyeing technique using a mixture of flour and hydrated lime as resist dye. After dyeing, the resist dye is not washed, and cracks appear when dried, adding some characteristics to the textile.
