  • Kasuri weaving

    Kasuri weaving (kasuriori, “blurred weave”) is a type of ikat weaving done with threads that have been resist dyed, leaving sections of the thread undyed. The threads are then aligned and woven to create stripes, checkered patterns, or pictorial motifs.

KONDO expresses the beauty of weaving and materials by combining two techniques: tate-zurashi kasuri (sliding warp ikat yarn backward and forward) to create patterns and ayaori (twill weaving) to give variation to the weave.
