[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. It was established in 1948 (Showa 23) and is a representative traditional pre-dyed fabric from Japan. This fabric is known for its soft texture, similar to handwoven products. The production process involves many manual steps, taking 2 to 4 months to complete, with over 30 individual stages. The finished fabric is all subjected to hot-water washing and natural drying, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage. It is a perfect fabric for those who wish to create a dedicated and distinctive piece with a touch of Japanese tradition.

[Characteristics of the Weaving]
The fabric features a large striped pattern with 16 repeats in the width. It is an original pattern from Shimogawa Orimono. 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.
