Mr. Samiro Yunoki, born in 1922, became the pupil of the fabric dyeing artist, Mr. Keisuke Serizawa, and actively working as a leading craftsman of stencil dyeing for many years. More than 70 works of his have been stored at the Guimet Museum in France in 2014.
Based on the stencil dyeing made by Mr. Yunoki, SIWA has manufactured a Naoron with Mr. Yunoki's design screen printed on it, retaining the original size. The bag was designed by Mr. Naoto Fukasawa.
The bag is made to commemorate the tenth anniversary of SIWA. Please take in some art into your everyday life by all means.
*Depending on the display, colors look different. There are colors that the manufacturer does not make.
