[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed Japanese textile produced by the Kurume Kasuri weaving company, which was established in 1948. It is a representative traditional pre-dyed fabric of Japan, known for its soft and handwoven-like texture, similar to hand-weaving. The production process involves extensive manual work, taking 2 to 4 months with over 30 steps to complete. Once the fabric is woven, it undergoes a hot water treatment and natural drying process, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage. This fabric is perfect for those who wish to create a carefully crafted traditional Japanese textile.

[Weaving Features]
The fabric is characterized by "Bokashi stripes," which are composed of shades and gradients of the same color. Bokashi stripes refer to a pattern of stripes where the color gradually changes. The term "stripe" ("shima" in Japanese) originally referred to cotton fabric with vertical stripes imported from foreign countries through Nanban trade. It was called "shima-mono" (island fabric) because it was brought from distant lands ("shima") and later came to be known as "stripe" during the Edo period.
