Weather – Bingo Kasuri Stole

Kasuri is a traditional fabric that has been dyed and woven in the eastern part of Hiroshima Prefecture since the late Edo period. The cotton weave is partially dyed with natural organic compounds such as indigo and persimmon tannin to create a beautiful pattern unique to Kasuri. The process of dyeing and drying is repeated many times so the fabric takes on a deep and beautiful indigo colour.

Slowly woven on a shuttle loom, the cotton fabric is fluffy and airy, with a smooth, comfortable feel that is cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
