Kosyokunobi is a store specializing in Bengala Dyes. It was established in 1965 as a producer of Bengala paints for temples, shrines,
and Japanese wooden homes.
In the past, the natural Bengala stains were a mainstay for Japanese wooden buildings because of their
superior characteristics of protection against insect infestation, decay, and their ability to protect wood from the sun's ultra-violates rays.

Because of a reduction in wooden structures and as housing styles have modernized, bringing the importation of building materials, the
cultural use of Bengala for painting has decreased.

In 1991, Kosyokunobi was launched. Through further research and development of the compounding techniques (for making products)
used since the establishment of the company, and by utilizing the beauty of the ancient, Japanese Bengala color we were able to
produce Bengala dyes for fabric.
Originally there was only red, but by making use of years of experience with the processing techniques
of curing temperatures and compounding, we also created other colors such as yellow, black, green, and purple.

There are 12 Bengala color variations made by Kosyokunobi.
It would be gratifying if you would appreciate these gnice colorsh with the
rich and complex heritage of the color combinations, made in the way they have been since ancient times.
