[About Kurume Kasuri]
Kurume Kasuri is a traditional pre-dyed fabric from Japan, woven on a retro belt-type power loom consisting of 20 interconnected looms driven by a single motor. The Kurume Kasuri weaving company was established in 1948 during the Showa era.

This fabric is known for its soft texture, which closely resembles handwoven materials. The production process involves a significant amount of manual labor, taking 2 to 4 months and more than 30 steps to complete. After weaving, the fabric undergoes a process of hot-water washing and natural drying, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage. It is a perfect choice for individuals seeking to create dedicated and intricate pieces with a touch of Japanese tradition.

[Characteristics of the Weaving]
The fabric features a large striped pattern with 16 repeats in the width, which 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.
