Method of weaving

Kakegawa-ori (Kakegawa weaving)

The beautiful simplicity is the essence of Kakegawa weaving. This is created by tightly weaving the best quality “igusa” soaked in the best dye, which is then weaved with the horizontal thread, which has “Igusa” color, to form design.

Fukuro-ori (Bag weaving)

Also called “Fuutsu-ori,” this is created by weaving more than 100 vertical threads than the decorative design (about 209 strings). This could weave obverse and reverse with totally different colors. The products have sensitive weaving patterns and are durable due to the double weaving.

Mon-ori (Crest weaving)

This is the method that weaves a design by changing the “kaikou” or open-mouth of horizontal threads where “igusas” are taken. The 209 horizontal threads weave out complicated patterns and these products are with the most technical and with various weaving patterns.

Itohiki-ori (Itohiki weaving)

This method is used for surface of Tatami-mats, or bordered matting since Japanese ancient times. There are two types: The first is called “futame-ori,” and it is made with 200 horizontal threads. The second is called “itohiki-ori,” and it is made with 135 horizontal threads. With this method, the horizontal threads do not appears on the surface, making the weaving smooth, clear, and hard to get dirty.
