  • Fūtsū double weave cloth

    Fūtsū double weave cloth (fūtsū ori) is a type of compound weave that uses two different sets of colored warp threads. The figuring on both faces of the resulting double-layered cloth have an inverted color relationship. Fūtsū (lit. “wind passes through”) refers to the opening between the two layers of cloth.

I produce reversible figured double weave textiles using the gradation of colors and the progression of shapes. I try to weave the textiles to bring out the soft texture of delicate silk threads.
