Indigo Threads / 藍●つむぐ

Weaving Japanese Craftsmanship and American Heritage

This exhibition explores the rich history of indigo dyed fabric and garments in Japan, including the modern hype on Japanese denim and jeans. While the United States is undisputedly known to be the birthplace of blue jeans, traditional Japanese craftsmanship has helped resurrect the classical American blue jean in extraordinary ways in recent history. Visitors are invited to explore the question, “Why Japan?” through the eyes of the historian, manufacturer, marketer, consumer, and more. The exhibition includes a series of lectures, films, and workshops, held in collaboration with Kurashiki City and The Textile Museum. For more details, visit: https://www.us.emb-japan.go.jp/jicc/
