Relaxing Kimono Dyeing Video

Long time, no post! I've been busy at work, but going back through my info to help someone out with some questions, I ran across this video again and wanted to share it here.

It's a lovely start-to-finish video (about ten minutes) of the traditional yuzen paste-resist process, one of the ways kimono are dyed and decorated. Get something warm to drink, relax and watch all of the incredible work that goes into making a classic yuzen kimono!

Rakuten Update

Hey everyone,

After years of recommending the Japanese online shopping mall Rakuten to others for free, because I've had a lot of great experiences shopping there and, for my readers, they ship internationally and in English, I will start getting a fixed $1 commission today if someone buys something there through one of my links.

This won't change my policy or honesty in things I find on Rakuten, but I want to be completely transparent. Thanks for reading and your support!
