Kurume Kasuri (Gasrui), Japanese Traditional Artisan Works


Kurume Gasuri is one of the BIG THREE Japanese Kasuri.(IyoKasuri and BingoKasuri are the another two).Japanese author "Osamu Dazai" loved this Kasuri.
Kasuri is woven with a pre-died indigo and white threads, weaving them and pattern be shown, birds-like, wave-like and so on. Some pattern seems to have meanings. "#"like pattern is called as "Igeta".This pattern is similar to the Chinese character "i" of Ido, which is a water well, which support people's life. Cube/square patterns has very interesting meaning.Five squares = Itsu (means five) this is same sound of "ever" in Japanese. Four = YO means "this world" So, the cube/square pattern ordinary means "ever after".
