Biography of speakers:
NISHIMURA-SHOTEN specializes in Hikibaku. Hikibaku is a technique that involves making gold yarn by finely cutting Mitsumata (chrysantha) paper that has gold, silver and/or other metals glued to it with lacquer, and weaving the gold yarn into silk. In hikibaku, a variety of colors can be achieved by heating or treating the yarn, which leads to hikibaku art.
