[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is woven on a Showa retro belt-style power loom, where 20 looms are connected from one motor. It originated from Kurume Kasuri Omoto, founded in 1945. It represents Japan's traditional pre-dyed fabric. The distinctive feature is its soft texture, closely resembling hand-woven textiles. There are many manual processes involved, taking 2-4 months to complete over 30 processes. It is a perfect textile for those who want to create special items with traditional Japanese textiles.

[Plain Pattern]
While Kurume Kasuri is known for expressing various patterns using the technique called "kukuri," one of its distinctive features is the soft texture, reminiscent of hand-woven fabric, even when woven on power looms. Throughout the processes of warping, weaving, and finishing, the artisans handle the threads with care, minimizing strain on the yarn, and employing many manual techniques. The resulting texture is a testament to the craftsmanship handed down from generation to generation. Although the tying process is omitted, the same artisans meticulously weave plain or striped patterns using the same processes. Therefore, the softness of the fabric is highly regarded by many enthusiasts when they first experience it.

[About Nep]
Design yarn, known as "fancy yarn," is interpreted as a decorative type of yarn with artistic elements. Among design yarns, Nep yarn is representative and is intentionally spun with small specks during the spinning process. These small specks are called "neps." As it is yarn, it is called "Nep yarn." By using Nep yarn as the weft, the fabric gains a texture resembling hand-spun yarn.
