All the fabric is woven one piece at a time by craftspeople who have a deep appreciation for the intricacies of this delicate craft.
The vibrant colors of tsuzure-ori make for wonderful fukusa and tapestries.

These beautiful fabrics, woven in the Nishijin district of Kyoto since the Nara era, are a symbol of the city.
Because of the tight weave and subtle color gradations tsuzure-ori is reminiscent of Japanese painting and considered the finest textile made.
