The first generation Tokusen established the weaver of the Imperial standard for not only the royal house but also purveyors to the Imperial Household Agency in Kyoto in 1680.
Thereafter the name has been succeeded from generation to generation.
The twelfth generation Tokusen Fujibayashi was the International traditional industrial artist who worked active based in Kyoto.
He was a successor of Japanese traditional art 'Rinpa'.
He also believed in 'beauty, noble, dignity' as an idea of the creation, and he performed his work production that established 'prayer to world peace' in his principal objective.
He was awarded the Ojuhosho (Medal with a Yellow Ribbon for industriousness) and recognized as one of the UNESCO authors.
He designed a technique that makes kimono sparkle by weaving jewels and platinums into the kimono fabric.
He passed away in 2013.
