CURRENT EXHIBITION: Tale of Tokushima – JAPAN –

with No Comments

【27th January – 10th February 2023】

Tokushima is a long-standing water city.
Tokushima, a city of water for centuries, is home to the “Ai” culture, which has been integrated into people’s lives along with its history and continues to fascinate people with its beautiful harmony.
The indigo produced in Tokushima is called “Awa Ai,” which has been spun from ancient times and attracts attention as a world-class “Japan Blue,” a color that symbolizes Japan.
Tokushima, the “origin of indigo,” prospered thanks to “Awa Ai,” and its unique culture, including “Awa Odori” and “Ningyo Joruri” (puppet theater), was born, and still lives with indigo.
In recent years, in addition to the indigo-dyeing techniques of Tokushima Prefecture, indigo has been utilized in new fields for environmental and health reasons.
We are pleased to invite you to visit us for an exhibition of products made with Tokushima Prefecture’s “Awa Ai” indigo.
