Story & Recommendation
Ino-kichi –Yuzen dyed retro-modern Japanese designs that brighten up your life
Located next to the Nishiki Market, ino-kichi is an original textile brand by famed Kyoto yuzen fabrics company, Kyobi Senshoku. The store's logo is a boar, which is known in Japan as a symbol of family well being and prosperity of one's descendants. In line with this symbol, ino-kichi aspires to continue to produce and nurture new products and designs and be a beloved brand. The greatest aspect of ino-kichi can be seen in its concept of "fun lifestyle goods that are only achieved because of their roots as veteran dyers." The ino-kichi's designs are characterized by a coupling of traditional Japanese patterns and original designs that allow them to seamlessly meld with any modern outfit. The charming designs maintain the original beauty of Japanese patterns while creating something entirely new in what can only be described as retro-modern. The reason ino-kichi is able to produce such incredible designs is that they are owned and operated by long-standing Kyoto dyer Kyobi Senshoku. The method of printing used at ino-kichi is a tried and true one backed by tradition that is based on the dyeing technique, kata-yuzen – which itself is taken from the traditional yuzen dyeing techniques of Kyoto. Also, the patterns featured in ino-kichi's designs are based on those stored at Kyobi Senshoku, meaning that many of them are modern reproductions of over 100-year-old traditional Japanese patterns formerly used on kimono and the like. ino-kichi's ability to produce such vivid and rich colors in their designs as well can be attributed to the generations of experience cultivated at Kyobi Senshoku. Born from the merging of Kyoto's traditional kyo-yuzen techniques, ancient Japanese patterns and ino-kichi's unique style, everything inthe store offers eye-catching, beautiful designs. If you're looking for everyday lifestyle goods with traditional Japanese designs, then ino-kichi is the place to go.
