[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional Japanese pre-dyed woven fabric created by Kurume Kasuri Orimoto, established in 1948. Operating on a retro-style belt-driven power loom system, where 20 looms are interconnected by a single motor, it embodies the nostalgic Showa era. Founded in the year 1948, Kurume Kasuri Orimoto is a distinguished weaving establishment specializing in this craft.

This fabric holds great significance as it represents the art of traditional pre-dyed weaving in Japan. It boasts a soft texture akin to hand weaving and is characterized by a multitude of manual processes. It requires more than 30 intricate steps and takes 2 to 4 months to complete a single piece. This meticulous craftsmanship makes it an ideal choice for individuals seeking to create meticulously crafted, traditional-inspired items.

[Weaving Characteristics]
Kurume Kasuri employs the unique "tate kasuri" technique, also known as "ita kasuri" or "board kasuri," which involves expressing patterns solely through warp threads (tate ito). This technique stands as a hallmark of the craft.
