Kurenai kai was established some forty years ago by the Japanese craftsman and author, Iwao Saito. He wanted to promote and hand down the long tradition of Japanese embroidery. The organisation wants to spread the technique and spirit of embroidery to the general public through workshops. The centre is located in Togane City, Chibu Prefecture, Japan. 

Kurenai kai organises regular workshops in Nagoya, Osaka, Tokyo, and at the headquarters of Kurenai kai in Togane City. It is linked up with the Japanese Embroidery Center in Georgia, USA. Principal tutor (2011) is Arata Tamura (1978), grandson of Iwao Saito.
