[About Kurume Kasuri]
A retro belt-driven power loom from the Showa era, consisting of twenty interconnected looms powered by a single motor. Founded in 1948, Kurume Kasuri is a distinguished traditional pre-dyed woven fabric manufacturer. It stands as a representative of Japan's heritage, known for its soft texture reminiscent of hand weaving. With numerous manual steps, it takes 2 to 4 months to complete over 30 intricate processes. This fabric is perfect for individuals seeking to create unique pieces with a touch of Japan's traditional textiles.

[Weaving Characteristics]
Creating patterns using the "Yoko Kasuri" technique by binding the weft threads (Yokoito) to form designs and weaving with a dedicated shuttle. This method, also known as "Egasuri," offers a high degree of design flexibility, including floral patterns and polka dots. The technique of aligning weft threads with a wooden tube known as a "tong" and weaving on a specialized power loom while fine-tuning the patterns represents a culmination of the binding machinery and skilled artisans. Globally, it's no exaggeration to say that Kurume Kasuri preserves the pinnacle of Kasuri weaving technology into the modern era.

[Polka Dot Pattern]
Polka dots are part of the "Eternal Global Pattern," along with stripes, checks, and others, that transcends eras and cultures. Different sizes include "Pin Dot," "Polka Dot," and "Coin Dot."
