● The beauty of finely traced family crests
Kamon, or Japanese family crest, is an indispensable part of any formal-style kimono, starting from those that are created using Kyo-kuromontsuki-zome dyeing method. By combining 4,000 existing crest patterns, up to one hundred million variations of crests can be created. With the use of a writing brush, Chinese ink and a compass made of bamboo, skillful artisans of Kamon no Koga delicately trace small (only 3 cm in diameter) family crests. They carry on the techniques of a traditional craft that is undeniably the highlight of Kyoto textile dye craftsmanship.
