[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed textile, established in 1948, woven on a retro belt-driven power loom with twenty units connected to a single motor, reflecting the vintage style of the Showa era. It represents a renowned Japanese tradition of pre-dyed weaving. The fabric is known for its soft and handwoven-like texture, resembling handwoven craftsmanship. The intricate production process involves numerous manual steps, taking 2 to 4 months to complete over 30 processes. After weaving, the fabric undergoes a natural drying process with hot water treatment, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage. This textile is well-suited for entrepreneurs looking to create a carefully crafted traditional Japanese piece.

[Characteristics of the Weaving]
It employs fine 60/2 count yarns for the weft, providing a glossy finish. The combination of 5 to 7 colors in both warp and weft creates a thin fabric with rich and deep color tones. The weaving is done without any unevenness or bumps, emphasizing the shiny appearance. This formal type is called "kiri" in Shimogawa Orimono, referring to the combined yarn weaving.
