Hideo Kageyama (1956) belives in making the most of the texture of the material. He creates weaving that are full of sincerity, while drawing out the characteristics of the fibers, such as lustrous silk, soft touch cotton, and firm linen. During the Showa period (1926-1989) Japanese painters in the Kamakura city liked to wear kimonos made by Hideo's Father Toshio Kageyama.
