“Into indigo – Touching indigo at hotel Kanra Kyoto

An exhibition related to indigo dyeing will start in Kyoto from July 14th!

From the various products of TERAS, we will carefully select and display only those made with indigo-dyed fabrics.
There are also items that will be released in conjunction with this exhibition. More details later.

This will be a joint exhibition of all 10 brands, and I think you will be able to experience indigo from various angles.

Thank you very much.

Until about 100 years ago, it was called "Japan Blue".
``Indigo'' is abundant in our daily life.
At that time, indigo was used not only as a dye for clothes, but also as a dye for clothes.
Also used as paints, medicine, and drinks.
It was also used as a glaze for pottery.

This time, there will be an exhibition where you can learn about indigo from the beginning,
We have collected a large amount of ``indigo'', including carefully dyed clothes, accessories, and amenities that take advantage of the benefits of indigo.
Furthermore, we are also preparing a collaboration project that allows you to deeply experience indigo.
