27 exceptional artisans

SukumoPicture : Sukumo Leather Horii

Whether specialising in artisanal embroidery, embossed leather, or laser-cut outs, all the artisans here showcase unique know-hows. Their techniques range from traditional to innovative, worked on textiles, leathers or accessories. Altogether 27 artisans are at the show, including 10 exhibiting for the first time, such as Sukumo Leather Horii, from the Awa district near Kyoto. This workshop extracts natural indigo dyes for colouring skins. The indigo leaves are harvested by hand, dried and fermented according to a Japanese method used for nearly 600 years. Materials from calf to crocodile are dyed by hand until an infinite range of blues in subtle nuances is obtained.
