About Tsutsugaki Dyeing
The resist paste is squeezed out of the funnel shaped utensil to sketch a design on the fabric. After the paste has settled, dye is applied to the cloth using brushes. There is no colour where the resist paste has been applied and this appears on the fabric as the outline of the artist’s design.

The power of heat, water, air and time allows the dye to settle on the cloth. The coloured parts are masked with resist paste and the background is dyed using brushes. Again, the power of heat, water, air and time is used to dry, steam and wash the fabric. When the resist paste is finally rinsed away, the lines drawn using the paste appear on the cloth in the original colour of the fabric.

Today, everyday, I think about what I am going to draw on the fabric of my choice…
