This dye shop in Yonago, Tottori Prefecture, has been making large flags for fishing boats for over 300 years. The store produces their dyed products using the traditional technique of drawing a sketch on the fabric, then using a piping bag to squeeze glue along the design. The hand-drawn motifs cannot be reproduced by machines.
