Takarajima senko in Fukuoka Japan
Is a small dyeing workshop founded by Chiharu Ogomori in 2001. Her focus has always been in finding a balance between traditional handcraft and modern-day lifestyle.
In the pursuit of the way to create products dyed only with natural materials by hand sustaining the tradition.
What we try to produce are affordable everyday products with a touch of handwork, but not expensive pieces of art. It is because we want more people to discover the value and charm of hand-dyed garments by wearing them on daily basis.
I believe this is one sustainable way of increasing the supporters of traditional craftsmanship.
To materialize this vision, we strive to keep up with the latest market demand through constant research and development. While maintaining the quality and characteristics of handwork, we also try to standardize the production process with figurative data to provide the clients clear indicators of required cost and time, as well as to improve the operational efficiency.
