What is Kyoto Denim

Artisan Toyoaki Kuwayama started Kyoto Denim in 2007 order to bring the craft of yuzen dyeing from the world of kimono painting to a new medium that would resonate in the 21* century. Kyoto Denim’s goal is to preserve this art, and bring it to audiences around the globe.

The dyeing and tailoring of our bags is all done in Kyoto. They showcase the skills of our craftsmen, and highlight the unique designs of Kyoto. Kyoto Denim also offers custom dyeing services, where you can select a pattern to be dyed on your own jeans.

Delivery time for custom work is typically 2 weeks, with international shipping available. Prices start from



Can your old denim improve the future? Yes! At Kyoto Denim, we can recycle your used garments through our circular sustainability program. Bring us your old denim, and we will transform it into DENIGUMA – teddy bears that are as unique as the garments they were made from.

adout “Tegaki yuzen”

The Kimono Traditional Crafts are the backbone of Kyoto’s exceptional artistic culture. Made by artisans, these rustic objects possess excellent functionality combined with a uniquely Japanese sense of beauty that was refined over the course of 300 years during the Edo Period. Tegaki yuzen is a freehand style of textile dyeing that was traditionally used to apply pictorial or decorative patterns to kimono and obi fabric.
