Kurume Kasuri is a special kind of fabric that has been around for centuries. A young girl named Inoue Den was inspired by a scrap of old material to start producing this exquisite fabric, and the Kurume clan later promoted its production. Today, Kasuri indicates a kind of textile that has its threads dyed beforehand. The threads are dyed by ikat techniques and woven to produce elaborate designs. With its simple texture, Kurume Kasuri is widely used in kimonos, accessories and interiors. It's also a perfect way to add a touch of Japanese style to your look.
