Fuji Textile Week

All things fabric-related in Fujiyoshida

Venue: Shimoyoshida Honmachi Street and surrounds, Fujiyoshida When: Late Nov - Mid Dec 2024

First held in 2021, the Fuji Textile Week event was designed to revitalize traditional industries and support the local Fujiyoshida community. This part of Yamanashi Prefecture has been a textile-producing region for over a thousand years, and the legacy of this continues to influence the city's identity.

Billing itself as the only textile art event in Japan, the exhibition – which actually runs for almost a month – will include a variety of fabric-based works on display from both domestic and international creators. In addition, there will be sales of fabric for anyone wanting to stock up for some DIY projects.
