History of tie-dyeing
The history of tie-dyeing is very long since it started in the 6th or 7th century in Japan. It was used a lot in other countries too, but the technique was improved and refined many times in Japan, and high level techniques, such as 'Kanoko-shibori' (dappled cloth) were invented, and these have been handed down through the ages and are still used in the present day.
Production and processing of tie-dyeing
Each product is made by a specialist craftsman who has accumulated a high level of technological knowledge. In addition, each craftsman is a specialist in only one field, for example a Hitta-shibori craftsman works only on Hitta-shibori. The term 'machine tie' is used, but this is not mechanical tie-dying. The term means `tied using a tie stand`, but in fact the product is still handmade.
