Dyeing Workshops

Try your hand at the traditional dyeing methods used for authentic Oshima Tsumugi silk fabric, and create a one-of-a-kind souvenir to commemorate your Amami trip! Local craftsmen offer workshops for visitors that feature various kinds of dyeing processes, including plant-based dyes, mud-dye, and indigo dyes. Bring your own white cloth or purchase white dyeable clothing on-site and experience dyeing methods that have survived on Amami for over 1,000 years! Popular items include shirts, handkerchiefs, scarves, and even hats or handbags. The possibilities are endless!
