From the spring of 2020, the Silk Museum was scheduled to sell two types of one-stroke papers, "Spring" and "Summer," designed from the visiting clothes by Hiroko Tajima in the museum's collection, but it will be temporarily closed due to the influence of the new coronavirus. Therefore, the sale was postponed.
At the same time as the opening of the museum on June 2nd (Tuesday), sales have started at the Silk Museum Shop.
