伊勢崎絣 Isesaki traditional resist-dyed textiles


Isesaki Kasuri refers to woven cloth produced in Isesaki City, Gunma Prefecture. Mainly seen in kimonos, this traditional textile has been highly regarded for its texture since ancient times. Today, Isesaki Kasuri ties and shop curtains (noren) are also in production. The more it is used, the more kasuri patterns and sheen show their characteristics, giving richer, profound color to the fabric.

For more detailed information including a description, history, and the general production process, please see the Kogei Japan: Traditional Crafts of Japan website.
