The technique of Kaga-nui embroidery was developed in Kanazawa while it was applied to the battle jacket of the Maeda family, the lords of the Kaga Clan, and the family's kimono for women.

Kaga-nui embroidery is characterized by three-dimensional designs of natural beauties using sink, gold, and silver threads elaborately. The embroidery every stitch tucked up carefully with a unique and delicate technique creates an elegant atmosphere.

Presently, embroidered products, such as Western-style cloth bags, neckties, and cushions, besides kimonos are manufactured.
