Kurume Kasuri (Gasrui), Japanese Traditional Artisan Works

20,328-YEN

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".
