【Chikusen】 Collaboration Workshop Using Yukata Fabric: October–November 2021

We will be running a workshop this autumn using “Chikusen Textile (Cloth)”, which is still highly prized. This project is a collaboration between the two well-established businesses Chikusen, a 179-year-old business, and Janome Sewing Machine, which is celebrating their 100-year anniversary this October.

At the workshop, you will get to use the sewing machine “Epolku” that was made to commemorate their 100th year anniversary and the Chikusen fabric which is made using natural fiber that is meticulously embroidered and dyed to create cloth with unparalleled quality. By showing the community the value of utilizing and passing down “high quality and durable products” amidst this age of mass production and consumption, this is also their way of contributing to SDGs and ethical consumerism.

This program is meant for those in grade 5 and above, but children in grade 4 and below may also participate if they are accompanied with an adult who is at least 20 years old. Please join and enjoy learning the basics of using a sewing machine and the unique features of Chikusen textile.


[Examples of Crafts]

Make a “frame bag” or “3-way clutch bag” using cloth with design patterns resembling yukata. When you attend, you will be able to see and choose the cloth yourself and make your very own original bag. They will have cloth with design patterns that vary depending on the venues.
