Suruga Dyeing
駿河和染 The dyeing industry developed together with the growth of the textile industry in Shizuoka in the 16th century. Two dyeing methods are used for Suruga dyeing. Katazome (stencil dyeing) is a dyeing method involving applying glue on a stencil and tsutsuzome is a method which uses a cone to apply glue. Suruga dyeing creates a pleasing contrast of indigo and white to which the Japanese feel a sense of nostalgia.
