  • 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.

  • 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.
