Kumagaya-some (Yūzen/ Komon)

It is said that Kumagaya-some originated during the Edo Genroku Period (around 1690).  At the time, Kumagaya was a cotton trading center, and because it was at the confluence of the Arakawa and Hoshikawa Rivers, many dyeing shops gathered there. At first, these shops dyed mainly cotton, but after common people became allowed to wear silk, they began dying silk as well. It carries on the tradition of intricately patterned komon stencil dyeing as well as the elegant hand-drawn yūzen techniques. Kumagaya-some is not famous therefore they don’t use Kumagaya-some name but they are not in market. Now Kumagaya-some  association is training of successors.
