Kasuri (絣) – the Japanese Ikat
On most models of our Chakura collection, we attach small Kasuri patches or strings. Kasuri is Japanese Ikat, which has been commonly used for Kimono since the 19th century. The production entails highly skilled technique. Only a few Japanese weavers continue production of Kasuri today. By including Kasuri textile on our clothing, we continue to support the ongoing production of this beautiful and traditional hand crafted art.
