Chusen is a type of Japanese traditional stencil dyeing method. In this method, dyes are poured onto the layered fabric, which has been protected with a special glue so that only the stenciled areas are dyed to imprint the intended patterns. The finished fabric is dyed in the same pattern on both sides, featuring a soft texture and distinctive colors.
