Indigo Threads / 藍・つむぐ:Weaving Japanese Craftsmanship & American Heritage

Headliner Exhibition of the 2019 National Cherry Blossom Festival
Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

The Japan Information & Culture Center (JICC), Embassy of Japan, DC, is proud to present “Indigo Threads / 藍 • つむぐ: Weaving Japanese Craftsmanship & American Heritage,” an exhibition exploring the rich history of indigo dyed fabric and garments in Japan, including the current hype on Japanese denim and jeans. While the United States is undisputedly known to be the birthplace of blue jeans, traditional Japanese craftsmanship has helped resurrect the classical American blue jean in extraordinary ways in recent history. Visitors are invited to explore the question, “Why Japan?” through the eyes of the historian, manufacturer, marketer, consumer, and more.

This three-month exhibition will also include a series of lectures, films, and workshops, held in collaboration with Kurashiki City.

“Indigo Threads” is the headliner exhibition of the 2019 National Cherry Blossom Festival, which celebrates the strong and enduring friendship between Japan and the United States, and the gift of 3,000 cherry trees given by Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the City of Washington, DC in 1912.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The exhibition will run from March 25 through June 28 and will be open to the public during regular JICC hours, 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The JICC will be closed on April 19 in observance of Good Friday, May 1 in observance of The Day of the Enthronement of His Imperial Highness the Crown Prince, and May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.
