[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed woven fabric produced by Kurume Kasuri Orimoto, established in 1948. Operated by a network of 20 interconnected retro Showa-era belt-driven power looms, this artisanal workshop exemplifies Japan's esteemed heritage of pre-dyed weaving. Notable for its soft, handwoven-like texture, the fabric is marked by an extensive manual crafting process spanning over 30 intricate steps, culminating in completion within 2 to 4 months. A perfect choice for those who wish to craft a uniquely exquisite piece with a touch of traditional Japanese elegance.

[Weaving Features]
A distinctive hallmark of Kurume Kasuri lies in its "Tatekasuri" technique, where intricate patterns are woven using only the warp threads (tateito). This technique, often referred to as "Itagasuri" or "board kasuri," produces visually captivating designs. By utilizing 30/2 threads for the kasuri motifs and 40/2 threads for the base fabric, the fabric exhibits a subtle yet tactile texture that accentuates the pronounced kasuri patterns.
