Takeda Kahei  

The technique of Arimatsu tie dyeing first started with Shokuro Takeda. He noticed that workers from southern Japan employed for the construction of Nagoya castle used tenugui cloth with unusual patterns. This inspired him to develop his own patterns using tie dyeing techniques. Takeda later moved to the city of Arimatsu, which then gave the name to this craft.


In 1872, Takeda Kahei decided to keep on the family tradition and opened the Takeda Kahei Shouten shop. Nowadays, the shop is still owned by the Takeda family and keeps on using the same hand-made traditional techniques to create many products from Yukata to purses.
