Our brand uses 100% Kurume Kasuri which is a traditional textile made of 100% cotton, from the southern part of Fukuoka in Japan. Kurume Kasuri has a 220-year history. We use Kurume Kasuri which is woven by Shimogawa Orimono located in Yame City. At Shimogawa Orimono, the threads and patterns are carefully adjusted by craftsmen on Kasuri looms which have been improved based on the TOYOTA-style power looms of the 1950s. These looms weave more slowly than a modern high-speed loom, which gives Kurume Kasuri a wonderful texture and makes it durable.
