[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed woven fabric, woven using a retro-style belt-driven power loom consisting of 20 interconnected looms driven by a single motor. It originates from Kurume City, established in 1948, and is considered one of Japan's representative traditional pre-dyed textiles. The fabric is known for its soft and handwoven-like texture, and its production involves many manual processes, taking 2 to 4 months with over 30 steps to complete. After weaving, the fabric undergoes a process of natural drying through hot water treatment, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage, giving it its final touch. Kurume Kasuri is the perfect choice for those seeking to create unique and meticulously crafted traditional Japanese textiles with its distinct weaving techniques and cultural significance.

[Weaving Characteristics]
One of the unique weaving patterns of Kurume Kasuri is called "Bokashi-shima," which consists of shades of the same color combined in a gradation style, creating a gradual change in color along the stripes.

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.
