Yuzen is a way of dyeing clothes which is traditionally handed down from Edo period(1603-1868). Kyoto is a famous place for Yuzen. And chokoku means "carving".

How are dyeing and carving related each other?
In Yuzen dyeing, carved paper patterns are used to design the clothes for kimono or other products.
