  • The feature of Enshu Tsumugi Fabric

Manufacturer of the Fabric




Enshu-Tsumugi is one of the weaving that were originated in the Edo Era and passed down to the Enshu region in Shizuoka. There were many professional weaver in that region because it was one of a three main production area of quality cotton in Japan. In 80’s, the growing shift of fabric production overseas resulted as the decline of Enshu-Tsumugi. However there are still many wavers who are devoted to the tradition and making effort for the improvement of the quality of this precious fabric with deep affection. There always have been the reliability from the customers.

Enshu-Tsumugi’s specialty is “The warmth of craftsmen”. From spinning to weaving, all processes need manual works by the skilled craftsmen. It’s widely used for general garment like kimono and bags and delight our daily life.

 


Among Enshu Tsumugi, of which the number of producers is decreasing year by year, the fabric for our item is produced by Shinchi Orimono.
Their single loom weaves only about 50 meters per day, depending on the weaving design. This is because the weaving speed is purposely kept at about one-half the normal speed to prevent the fabric from being overstretched. Thanks to this, the fabric retains its charming soft texture.
Because yarn-dyed yarns of various thicknesses are used, the expression of the weave is very three-dimensional and has a rich depth. Its shading gives it a unique beauty. Fine patterns are woven as if by magic, which is the result of meticulous calculation. The blueprints of some designs exist only in the mind of a artisan who has been working with the craft for many years.
Their fabrics frequently appear in the collections of foreign brands as well as in the traditional Japanese wear industry.
