Yoshiko Jinzenji

White x shiro


Yoshiko Jinzenji is a textile artist who travels around the world in her studio and Japan in Bali , Indonesia for nearly 30 years .

She is a well-known quilt writer and the first creator in the world to create white from bamboo dyes.

As the same Japanese, I am proud of the achievements that made the charm of the Orient known to the world in such a simple white .

This wonderful artist is about to make a new start with a sense of mission to pass on the culture to the next generation, increasing the attractiveness of human beings who have spent more than 60 years in their vitality .


"I still remembered that I hadn't told the next generation what I was doing with the true nature (material) . Can you help me?"


Her aura at that time was truly innocent. A straight woman, a pure white cloth I want to convey true white.
