Our company does not limit itself to a single type of fabric, handing a wide variety of types ranging from komaro for midsummer, to monsha for stylish clothing, sha for priestly vestments, undergarments for summer kimono, and more. Recently, we have been expanding our horizons beyond kimono to use these fabrics as material for western apparel and interior furnishings.
Creating Pattern Card Data
You can choose to have us create the design or you can supply your own design, and we will create the pattern card data in-house. Please also consult us about the expressive possibilities of karamiori, which allows great flexibility to control the sheerness of the fabric.
Types of Thread (Material)
Fundamentally, our company uses silk thread for the warp threads. The reason is that, as we specialize in karamiori, silk is the most suitable material for maintaining quality. Threads which have a raised nap like cotton or which break easily under tension are unsuitable for the warp in karamiori. In contrast, there is relative flexibility in selecting the material for the weft, including polyester, cotton, or wool, etc.
About Production Capacity
Our company specializes in karamiori, and as it is more complex to weave than typical textiles, it requires commensurately more time to weave. While we are unable to handle high volume production for this reason, we are able to obtain textures, feels, and effects not often seen via crafting it by hand.
