What is Kurume Kasuri Weave ?
Kurume Kasuri is a textile produced in Kurume City and surrounding areas in Fukuoka Prefecture. The fabric is made of cotton and is breathable, making it feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. The more you wear it, the more it gets used to your skin and the better the texture becomes. The more you wear it, the more it becomes familiar to your skin and the more the texture improves. It is a durable fabric, so it is excellent for everyday wear.
The characteristic of Kurume Kasuri is the blurring and bleeding of the pattern. You can feel the familiarity of the Kasuri made by hand.
Despite the simplicity of the designs, design techniques continued to advance, creating techniques such as large pattern and small pattern kasuri and picture kasuri.
How to choose the size of a kotatsu futon
Ideally, a kotatsu futon should be about 43" to 51" (110 to 130 cm) larger in both length and width than the kotatsu tabletop.
This means that the futon will be at least 21" (55 cm) larger than all four sides of the table.
However, these days, kotatsu tables tend to be taller. The average height of a kotatsu is said to be about 15" (39 cm). If your kotatsu is taller than this, a larger futon may be more suitable.
It is recommended that you choose a cover for your kotatsu futon that is the same or about 2″ / 5 cm larger than the kotatsu futon.
