Suzusan rooted in the Murase family is in their fifth generation of refining textiles with the traditional shibori technique for over 100 years. They regard shibori as a cultural heritage that must uphold with endless passion and commitment to perfection. In order to stop the decline of the shibori craft that has been witnessed over the past five decades, they are attempting to give the technique a more contemporary relevance through the development of new and innovative procedures and modern creations. Hiroyuki Murase, creative director of suzusan, is the eldest son of the Murase family. Today young people work again in the traditional way in the artisanal studios. They enrich exclusive clothing made of fine yarns with individual modern designs.
