I purchased this jacket for my grandma, who used to live in Japan. She absolutely loved it. She said it was like the jackets she used to wear.
The fabric is soft, the color and design were like they were tailored to her, and she was giddy over the inner pockets. It's lightweight enough for her to wear in the summer, which is something she was looking for.
Thank you, Master Craftsmanship, for giving my grandma a functional piece of nostalgia.
Mainly found in Fukuoka Prefecture, kurume ori traces its roots to the Edo Period, and is still beloved today.
A traditional woven fabric, it features a variety of patterns made by utilizing various techniques to weave evenly dyed yarn.
The technical difficulty of Kurume Ori(weave) lies in its fine weaving technique using multiple pieces of yarn. Its unique look and feel is the result of meticulously adjusting the way the warp and weft threads are woven. Fabric woven from nep yarn which deliberately shows the unevenness of the yarn is one such technique. With a tasteful finish, this time-honored technique of intentionally showing the fabric's unevenness expresses simplicity and traditional Japanese beauty. The colors of the warp and weft threads are also combined to create shades of light and dark, resulting in a sense of depth throughout the fabric.
It is precisely through the expertise of skilled craftsmen that this traditional Japanese aesthetic can be expressed.
