Craftmanship & Artistry

The Chiso craftsmanship is supported by the work of many artisans, including handwork of craftsmen,
silks and dyes as materials, and cultures and artistry developed in long history.
As such, is cultivated though the act of nature as well as human.

It is not simply a matter of inheritance; rather, as we move toward to the future,
we will enhance the techniques to create beauty based
on what generation after generation has taught us: "Tradition is not to conform, but to build around."
