[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is produced using a retro belt-style power loom, where 20 looms are connected to a single motor. It originated from Kurume Kasuri Omoto, established in the year 1945. This fabric represents a traditional pre-dyed weaving technique that is characteristic of Japan. Its notable feature is the soft texture, which closely resembles hand-woven fabrics. The production involves numerous manual processes, taking 2 to 4 months to complete over 30 steps.

[Plain Pattern of Kurume Kasuri]
While Kurume Kasuri is known for its technique called "kukuri," which expresses a wide variety of patterns, even when woven on power looms, it retains a unique soft texture similar to hand-woven fabrics. Throughout various stages such as warping, weaving, and finishing, every effort is made to minimize the strain on the yarn and many processes are carried out manually. The resulting texture is a testament to the skills passed down from generation to generation. Even in plain or striped patterns where the tying process is omitted, the same artisans meticulously weave and finish the fabric using the same processes. Therefore, the softness of the fabric when first touched is highly appreciated by many enthusiasts.

[About Slub Yarn]
Design yarn, also known as "fancy yarn," is interpreted as a decorative type of yarn with artistic elements. Among them, "nep yarn" is a representative type, where intentionally spun small knots or neps are incorporated into the yarn during the spinning process. These small knots are referred to as "neps." As yarn is "yarn," it is called "nep yarn." By using nep yarn as the weft (horizontal thread), the fabric acquires a hand-spun texture.
