The Tama area was once known as a region where textile production was thriving. During the Edo period, many farmers raised silkworms, and it is said that cocoons and textiles were valuable cash income. A woven fabric called Ome stripe was produced in the Edo period and became famous all over the country. When textiles prosper, dyeing products that dye threads and silk are inevitably required. A result, its own dyeing culture in the Tama region has evolved. Please touch on the three dyeings that still remain, their techniques, and their "Chic". In honor of the craftsmen who have preserved and inherited the culture here for over 100 years.
