Suzusan

About

Suzusan

Suzusan is based upon an ancient Japanese textile finishing technique called Shibori, literally translated as wring, twist. Usually, it has been used for Kimono or Yukata for over centuries in Japan. This sensitive handicraft has been succeeded from mother to daughter, father to sun for over 400 years in a small village Arimatsu, Japan. However this traditional heritage has been declining since last half century because of the change of the lifestyle, there were more than 10,000 artisan in this small village before, but became less than 200 finally today.

Hiroyuki Murase, a fifth-generation member of a Shibori artisan family moved to Europe when he was 20 and studied fine art in the UK and Germany to aim to become an artist.

However some years later in Europe, he looked back and recognized the value and beauty of this handicraft of his hometown by a chance with the distance from Japan, then he decided to take over his family business. He became Creative Director in 2008 and launched suzusan brand with a few shawls, then Ready-to-Wear collection in 2015 and Home & Living Collection in 2019 using this heritage. Hiroyuki’s family has a long tradition working in Shibori yet the designer has taken the traditional techniques and applied selected materials such as hand-woven cashmere, alpaca or transparent silk from Japan and all over the world. The fusion of hand dyed colors and materials is a new take on the craftman’s tradition.
