Hirose Dyeworks, le cœur de la teinture

Hirose Dyeworks is a house of traditional hand-dyeing with paper stencils, retaining the Japanese artisan spirit while creating contemporary pieces. All of their textiles and products are dyes in the manner of Edo Komon, a popular garment worn by the samurai class during the Edo period in Japan.

Inside the atelier, the air is calm and serene. There is a sense of history and transmission guarded in the over 4000 paper stencils kept inside old wooden drawers in a dark small tatami room. Each is an original; if one is gone, it is gone for good.

A stencil is placed on a long solid timber more than 7 meters long. Then, rice-bran is applied on top of the paper so that intricate patterns appear on the fabric. From here, over fifty processes occur before a product reaches the user.

This dyeing technology has lasted 400 years, and Hirose Dyeworks hopes to make it last many years more.
From February 18-20, 2014, Hirose Dyeworks participates in Maison d’Exceptions, the space at Première Vision dedicated to haute création.
