[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed woven fabric, produced by a retro belt-driven power loom system consisting of 20 interconnected looms driven by a single motor. The origin of this craft dates back to 1948 when Kurume Kasuri weaving company was established. It represents one of Japan's renowned traditional textiles, known for its soft and handwoven-like texture.

The production process involves a significant amount of manual labor, taking 2 to 4 months and over 30 steps to complete. After weaving, the fabrics undergo a process of shrinkage of about 10% through a natural drying method after being immersed in hot water.

[Characteristics of the Weaving]
Kurume Kasuri features a blurred stripe pattern created by combining shades of the same color. 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.

The fabric is woven using fine warp threads and thicker weft threads, which emphasizes the soft texture of the weft threads, giving the fabric its characteristic softness.

Warp threads: 60/2
Weft threads: 10/1 slab
Fabric thickness: Slightly thick + soft
Chemical dye: 100%
Cotton: 100%
Width: Approximately 38 cm
Finish: Shrinkage of about 10% through natural drying, allowing for immediate cutting and sewing after purchase.

The fabric is sold in units of 6 meters. The price shown is for 6 meters. Please be aware that there may be slight color variations between the actual product and the photo.
