[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, reminiscent of handwoven materials, and is a representative of traditional pre-dyed weaving in Japan. The production process involves extensive manual work, taking 2 to 4 months and over 30 steps to complete. The woven fabric undergoes a process of hot-water washing and natural drying, resulting in approximately 10% shrinkage. It is an ideal choice for those who want to create meticulously crafted traditional pieces.

[Characteristics of the Weaving]
Featuring a bokashi stripe pattern composed of gradations of the same color family. Bokashi stripe is a pattern where stripes gradually transition in color. 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.
