[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed woven fabric, woven using a retro belt-driven power loom with 20 looms connected to a single motor. It was founded in 1948 during the Showa era and is a representative traditional textile of Japan. The fabric is known for its soft and hand-woven-like texture, giving it a unique character similar to handcrafted textiles.

[Weaving Characteristics]
The fabric features a "bokashi-stripe" pattern created using shades of the same color. Bokashi-stripe refers to stripes arranged in a way that gradually changes colors. 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.
