Traditional Yuki-Tsumugi weaving experience (world cultural heritage)

2015.06.05

Introduction

In this tour I will take you to hidden local places in Yuki city in Ibaraki prefecture. There you can learn more about typical aspects of the Japanese culture, historical places, and great local experiences.

Yuki-tsumugi is a high-grade silk textile fashioned in a folk art style via techniques handed down from the Nara period (8th century).
All the work is done by hand, from the spinning to the actual weaving.
The process yields silk with a unique texture and the highest possible quality.
