Shows how the Yuzen-Kimono is made in Kyoto. We follow the process from the designing and making of the wide variety of beautiful hand painted materials, the hand sewing of the traditional kimonos and finally the wearing of them by children and women of all ages on special occasions in the ancient city of Kyoto. Without commentary - music only with English intertitles.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
