You can even shop for special tenugui only available at COREDO Muromachi Terrace, including iconic Japanese images and designs.

Workshop At at Glance (approx. 90 min.)

1. Apply the Glue

Once the paper comes together it’s treated with a dying paste and folded as a single accordion like sheet.

2. Glue & Dyeing

Make a little mountains of paste to work in so no unnecessary dye bleeds out and begin adding in the dye.

3. Wash by Hand

Rinse once the dye setting is complete. Wash off the dyeproof paste and any excess dye.

4. Drying

Once the fabric is thoroughly washed, just wait for it to dry!
