The kasuri technique that was created in India approximately 2,000 years ago has spread throughout the world over the centuries. Kasuri fabrics used to be woven not only in Japan, but also in other Asian countries and many European countries, including France, Italy and Germany. While kasuri is still found frequently in some developing countries in Asia, Japan is the only advanced country where it is still produced. With the requirement for improved efficiency and advance of mechanization, traditional fabrics were replaced by printed fabrics and other types that can be produced in large quantities at low prices. No matter how advanced machinery becomes, many aspects of the kasuri -making process require manual work and there are many restrictions on its representation, but it is also true that it has an atmosphere that cannot be created by printing. GOOD WEAVER is producing original fabrics while maintaining the advantages of the long-standing tradition by combining handcraft and machinery.


約2000年前にインドで生まれたかすりの技法は長い年月をかけて世界中で織られるようになった。日本はもちろんアジア各国、フランス・イタリア・ドイツなどヨーロッパの多くの国々でもかすりは織られていた。アジアの一部の途上国では今でもかすりを見かけることも多いが、先進国で織り続けているのは日本だけ。生地は効率が求められ機械化が進みプリント生地など安く大量に作れるものへ取って代わった。かすりはどんなに機械が進化しても手にしかできない工程が多く、表現に制約も多いがプリントでは出せない雰囲気があるのも確か。GOOD WEAVERでは手の仕事と機械を使い、長く続いた伝統の良さを守りながらオリジナルの生地をつくり続けています。
