Traditionally known as "Kenjo" due to being a tribute for lords, Hakata Ori textiles are some of the most luxurious and finely crafted fabrics in all of Japan. The lustrous, plain-woven fabrics are elegantly designed, while the figured textiles are vibrantly colorful and elaborately woven. The obi sashes made from these fabrics are easy to tie and have a characteristic silk squeak when cinched tight. In the modern age, few people wear kimono regularly, so the shokunin have adapted their skill to making smaller, everyday items - like this wallet. Without any compromise on quality.
