The kasuri-ori scarves are made from woven material sourced from Kiriko's Japanese heritage manufacturer.
Fukuoka 福岡県 is famous for its woven kasuri 絣 fabrics. Many craftsmen in the city have used the same wooden looms and weaving techniques for generations. This produces a unique patterning and texture that differs on each side of the fabric.
Kasuri, a traditional Japanese fabric, derived from the word “kasureru” meaning “blurred” is created using individually dyed threads that are skillfully woven into the patterns you see here.
Each scarf is sewn, pressed and packaged by hand in Portland, Oregon.
