[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a retro belt-type power loom from the Showa era, consisting of 20 interconnected looms driven by a single motor. Founded in 1948, it is a traditional Kasuri weaving company in Kurume, Japan. It is renowned for its traditional pre-dyed fabric. The textile features a soft and handwoven-like texture, closely resembling handwoven products. The production process involves many manual steps, and it takes 2 to 4 months to complete, with over 30 individual stages. After weaving, the fabric undergoes a hot-water washing and natural drying process, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage. This traditional Japanese fabric is perfect for those seeking to create a dedicated and unique piece.

[Characteristics of the Weaving]
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.
