SCULPTING TEXTILES
Katayama Bunzaburo Shoten| 片山文三郎商店

Shibori is the Japanese word for techniques that shape textiles and preserve their form, even when dyed. Kazuo Katayama is the third-generation president of this company that keeps up the century-old tradition. “Shibori tie-dye’s concave-convex characteristics achieve unique and daring designs,” he says. “Fashion and art fuse and thereby turn into a complete new form of wearable art.”
