Kyoya Shop and Staff


Founded in 1918 Kyoya somemonoten (dye house) is one of the few dyehouses left in Japan that design, dye and sew all their products. Located in the castle town of Ichinoseki, a small team of skilled craftspeople create every single product on offer.

Whilst always mindful of tradition, Kyoya Dye House doesn’t feel bound by it, introducing innovative new techniques to better their products.
