My name is Takuma.
I'm Indigo Shibori Dyer.

I call my works
shibori techniques + geometric design =『Shibometric Dye』

When I was 28 , one of my friend taught me a Shibori technique.
This experience blew my mind!
Since then , I fell in love with Shibori Dye. It's been about ten years since that day.

I've been traveling Inside and outside of Japan since I was a teenager.
I met so many different cultures ,
arts , nature and people.
From 2012 to 2018 , I was in India and Nepal , learn and create Indigo Shibori dying.

I want to share Indigo and Shibori techniques to the people who want to experience a little more about Japan.

It is big pleasure to me to see you surprise when you open your Indigo Shibori Dye cloth!

Dear Takuma san、 It was great experience that we could make Shibori work shop togthere. He is very professional and have a lot of knowledge about shibori. The work shop was fun with very good guidance. The workshop space was beautiful tatami room、 with lovely views of the mountain. Also very close to the beautiful shimoda beach . Takuma is such a friendly man and can speak English very well . He came to pick us up from the station、so access to the workshop space was easy. We really enjoyed、thank you for good time and beautiful Shibori.
