Our experience in designing, planning and weaving Kokura-ori fabrics has enabled us to produce mainly high-density fabrics made of cotton, wool and other materials. We value the expression of pre-dyed yarns and weave in flexibility of design without limiting the number of warp yarn colours.

A new type of warping machine enables designs without repeats across the entire weaving width, and we can deal flexibly with small lots of less than 300 m. We also offer a direct solution from the prototype stage to design and weaving according to the customer's needs, including sample weaving and the production of original yarns using a twisting machine.

Kokura-ori is a textile that was produced at the beginning of the 17th century by the Kokura feudal clan of southern Japan. A cotton cloth with vertical stripes, which was used to make the hakama (samurai trousers) and the obi(sash). This fabric is thick and strong, but has a soft texture, even the first Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa cherished. The use of a greater number of wrap threads in relation to weft threads creates delicate color gradations, giving the vertical stripes design three-dimensional effect. Kokura-ori has a history of more than 400 years and had been used as school uniforms since around 1870.
