  • 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.

I mainly weave Ojiya-chijimi (100% ramie) in the ikat style, and by incorporating traditional techniques I accept the challenge of creating new designs and pieces.
