It is a notice of order production of the third Kurume Kasuri Maxi. Collaboration with Mr. Orimoto and craftsmen is not just a one-time fireworks display, it is meaningful to continue. I am very happy to be able to release the third new work thanks to the many people who asked for it last time and the time before last.

If you wear Kurume Kasuri on the front side, it will be a simple skirt that looks neat and fashionable, but if you wear Italian cotton on the front side, it will be a feminine skirt with plenty of gathers and volume. You can enjoy the two-sidedness unique to reversible.

About Kurume Kasuri

Kurume Kasuri is a cotton fabric produced in the Chikugo region in southern Fukuoka Prefecture. The durable cotton fabric is perfect for work clothes and was hand-woven in the old days.

Approximately 200 years ago, solid colors were the norm for everyday wear that emphasized practicality. Den Inoue (13 years old at the time), the daughter of a rice dealer, came up with the technique of creating patterns with a gentle texture on textiles. By weaving yarns that have been dyed in advance using a technique called "Kukuri", subtle misalignment occurs, creating a unique faint pattern. This is a major feature and charm of Kurume Kasuri.

The process is very precise, and the yarn bundle is tied and dyed to create the pattern, and the dyed yarn bundle is unwound and woven to finally complete a single piece of fabric. It takes more than a month to complete, and depending on the pattern, it can take more than three months. The evolution of machines has reduced the burden of work compared to the past, but there is not a single process that does not require human manual labor. Matching the warp and weft patterns is extremely difficult and requires a high level of craftsmanship.

The Kurume Kasuri technique was designated as an Important Intangible Cultural Property of Japan in 1957, and in 1976 as a traditional craft designated by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry.

One of the reasons Kurume Kasuri is loved by so many people is that it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, which is unique to cotton.
