[About Kurume Kasuri]
This is a retro belt-driven power loom from the Showa era, with 20 looms connected from one motor. It is the Kurume Kasuri Omoto, founded in 1945, and represents a traditional pre-dyed woven fabric in Japan. It features a soft texture similar to handwoven textiles. The weaving process involves many manual steps, taking 2-4 months to complete over 30 processes. After weaving, the fabric undergoes a natural drying process with hot water, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage. This fabric is ideal for those who want to create a special piece with traditional Japanese fabrics.

[Weaving Features]
Kataha refers to using a single warp thread. By arranging the warp threads in two alternating colors, it achieves a deep and rich color that cannot be expressed with a single color. This technique is unique to pre-dyed fabrics. The weft threads use slub yarn, a type of decorative yarn with irregularities, to create a three-dimensional effect.
