[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed woven fabric that utilizes a retro belt-driven power loom, where 20 looms are connected and operated by a single motor. It was established in 1948 during the Showa era by the Kurume Kasuri weaving factory and has become a representative traditional textile of Japan. The fabric is known for its soft and hand-woven-like texture, closely resembling handcrafted work.

The weaving process involves using an old-style loom known as the "4-tsuori" that weaves checkered patterns. Despite being a power loom, it operates at low speeds, allowing for a slow and gentle weaving process. From the warp preparation stage onward, the craftsmen work with loose tension to avoid putting stress on the threads, resulting in a soft texture. For the weft threads, they use "mura-ito" or unevenly thick threads, which create subtle surface irregularities and variations in color intensity. This approach allows for contrasting color combinations while maintaining a soft and expressive appearance.
