There are many manual processes, and it takes 2-4 months to woven 30 processes.
The feature of Kurume Kasuri is to express a wide variety of patterns with techniques called kuri.
One of the features is the unique soft texture that is close to hand -woven even in the fabric woven with a power loom.
In each process such as sutra, weaving, and finishing, there are many processes performed by hand without putting a load on the thread as much as possible.
The texture that is born is a proof that has been passed down from the craftsman's hand to the hand. Other than the eliminated processing process, it is plain or striped.
The same craftsman is carefully woven and finished in the same process. Therefore, the softness of the fabric when you first pick up the plain is recognized by many enthusiasts.
It is interpreted as a type of yarn called fan shyan and is interpreted as a design -designed decorative thread.
Among the design yarn, Nepyan is one of the typical threads that intentionally spin small grains in the spinning process. This small grain is called "nep". It is called Nepyan because it is yarn = thread. By using Nepyhan as a weft, it becomes a texture with a hand -pongee feeling.
