Kasuri () – the Japanese version of ikat (resist-dyeing) technique. In this traditional artistic weaving the pattern is obtained in a time-consuming process of binding and dying threads by hand. The “encoding” of the design in the thread yet BEFORE weaving allows creating breath-taking, slightly blurry, vibrating ornaments, mainly in white and navy blue, thanks to the use of a natural indigo dye. In this technique there is no top and bottom of a fabric – both sides are identical.

Kasuri arrived in Japan in the 18th century from Ryukyu Islands (now Okinawa), where it has been applied since the 12th century. Kurume kasuri is still used today in the Kurume region on Kyushu Island, in the south of Japan. It originated more than 200 years ago thanks to a 12-year-old peasant girl Den Inoue and it became popular very quickly due to unique design, resistant fabrics and lasting colors. In the old times, the kasuri fabrics were applied in the production of daily-use kimono and clothing for work in the field, but today their irresistible charm makes them come into fashion. The cotton kasuri fabrics age with grace, they become softer and the patterns and colors – more vibrant.
