Tsutomu Ida / Born in 1965 Yokohama, Japan / Guraduated from Tama Art University / Textile Designer & Dyeing Artist
While planning & designing of bed linen & interior fabrics, I also presented hand-made dyeing textile craft goods from 2013, as named "Da" (unregistered brand). And I changed the dyeing techinique from tie-dye to curent Batik in 2015, and changed the brand name in my real name "TSUTOMUiDa" from 2017. Curently, no product handling in store and online, direct sale in the exhibition only. I will anounce soon, if I have new deployment.
It is also called wax-dyeing, and the staining technique in Asia from ancient times. Especially Java island's Batik is also as known "Javanese Chintz" is a world heritage site as a valuable crafts. TSUTOMUiDa's Batik is influenced Javanese Batik very much, but has one unique techniques such as combining with other staining dyeing techniques of the world.
Chintz = japanese called "Sarasa" is said originated in India, created a Chintz each spread throughout Europe, Africa, and Japan or other Asia. I suppose about "Chintz(Sarasa)" as follows. The cloth that the surface was filled with many detailed pattern, with the print or dyeing. TSUTOMUiDa's Chintz uses combined into Indian block print techniques and Javanese Batik techniques mentioned above, and various tribal patterns of the world, rebuilds the designers perspective based on original design hand-made products.
