Comment Meisen is a weaving and dyeing technique for producing a kasuri styled textile, identified by a hazy or unfocused design. The meisen method turned out a kasuri appearing textile but permitted faster production in greater quantity than did the labor intensive traditional kasuri technique. Meisen was first produced around 1870 and continued in use until the mid 1950s.
