[About Kurume Kasuri]
Powered by a single motor that connects 20 looms, our vintage belt-driven power looms evoke the nostalgic ambiance of the Showa era. Established in 1948 during the same era, we are Kurume Kasuri weaving artisans. Our textiles epitomize the esteemed tradition of pre-dyed weaving in Japan, characterized by a soft texture reminiscent of hand weaving. With a meticulous manual process spanning over 30 steps, it takes 2 to 4 months to create each masterpiece. Perfect for those seeking meticulously crafted traditional Japanese textiles.

[Weaving Features]
The weft threads (horizontal threads) include a mixture of 20/1 and 16/1 yarns, creating a distinctive pattern and yarn thickness variation. The warp threads (vertical threads) feature a gradient stripe pattern ranging from navy to blue. For the weft threads, we chose to weave them randomly, rather than using the traditional "tongumaki" technique for kasuri. As a result, the kasuri patterns in the weft do not repeat uniformly, but instead subtly shift with each iteration. This unique non-repeating pattern resembles the bustling intersection of lives at a "scramble crossing," where the same scene appears different due to the diversity of people's journeys intersecting. Please note that the pattern in the weft threads varies irregularly and cannot be perfectly matched.

The range of pattern variations includes red and yellow, providing a narrower spectrum of color change.
