Nishijin is a district in Kamigyo ward of Kyoto, Japan, and a traditional textile known as Nishijin-ori(Nishijin weaving)is produced in this area.
Nishijin weaving was created in Kyoto over 1200 years ago by using many different types of colored yarns and weaving them together into decorative designs. These specialized procedures are tedious, but necessary to obtain the spectacular design needed to ensure the quality of Nishijin weaving.
At the turn of the 8th century, in 794, Kyoto, also known as "Heian-kyo" was introduced as the capital of Japan. Soon after the productivity of the Nishijin increased, it was brought on in order to provide the Imperial court and aristocracy with the materials they needed.
Today Nishijin weaving is seen more frequently in such Japanese ceremonies as a wedding. The work of the Nishijin weave is present in the traditional clothing of the bride. Her traditional Kimono is beautiful and shows the Nishijin designs that have been handed down through the generations. These traditional designs range from scenes of nature, different breeds of birds and several different type of flowers.
There are many other products available through Nishijin weaving. These products range from Kimono scarves, different types of Kimonos, belts, shawls, many different types of cloth and decorations that adorn the walls of Japanese homes.
