[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed woven fabric that originates from Kurume, Japan. The weaving process involves twenty power looms connected to a single motor, which adds a retro touch to the production. Established in 1948, Kurume Kasuri has a rich history and represents a renowned Japanese craft.

[Characteristics of the Weave]
The fabric features large stripes that repeat across its width, showcasing an original pattern by Shimogawa Orimono, the Kurume Kasuri manufacturer. 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.

[Specifications]
Vertical Threads (Tate-ito): 40/2
Horizontal Threads (Yoko-ito): 10/1 Slub
Thickness: Slightly thick
Dyeing Process: Chemical dyeing, 100% cotton
Weaving Width: Approximately 38 cm
Finishing: After weaving, the fabric undergoes a process of shrinking by approximately 10% through hot water treatment and natural drying. This allows for easy cutting and sewing after purchase.

[Notes]
The fabric is sold in 6-meter increments, and the price listed reflects the cost per 6 meters. Please be aware that there may be slight differences in color perception between the actual fabric and the photographs provided. For those seeking a meticulously crafted traditional fabric to create unique pieces, Kurume Kasuri is the ideal choice.
