  • Hakata brocade

    Hakata brocade (Hakata ori) is a woven textile produced around the Hakata district of Fukuoka, Fukuoka prefecture. The weave employs thousands of closely packed warp threads, which almost entirely hide the weft. Representative patterns, consisting of warp threads, include stripes and “offertory motifs,” such as Buddhist thunderbolt scepters (vajra) and “flower plates” for Buddhist flower-scattering ceremonies.
