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.

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.
