Founded in 1608 by eight farming families, Arimatsu became known for a tie-dye technique called shibori, which produced beautiful fabrics with intricate patterns that were perfect for summer kimonos. Arimatsu’s feudal lord prohibited the production and sale of shibori outside of his realm, and the local industry flourished.
