Kasuri scarf (stripe/red)
Kurume Kasuri is a method of textile dyeing invented by a girl named Inoue Den, who was born in Kurume in 1788. It has been woven as a side job of farmers in the Chikugo area since around the end of the Edo Era (late 19th century) and started to be used regularly in the clothing of ordinary people in the Meiji Era (late 19th - early 20th century). It is now considered one of the most famous woven fabrics for work clothes.
The delicate splashed pattern we see today was achieved thanks to the active promotion of the textiles by the domain and the efforts of many forerunners. Following Yuki Tsumugi Silk and Ojiyachijimi/Echigojofu Hemp, Kurume Kasuri Cotton was designated a National Important Intangible Cultural Asset in 1967, as well as a Traditional Craftwork in 1976.
