Kurume Kasuri is a hit item that is loved by many people even today, “Monpe”. The more you use it, the softer it becomes, and the more you use it, the more you get used to it.
This summer is so cool! Let’s make a Monpe debut!
More than 3,000 pieces of Monpe from 8 weavers and wholesalers will be gathered in a variety of colors, patterns, and silhouettes.

* 2. New challenge! “A modern take on traditional haori” *
* ■Coordinating Kurume Kasuri fashion item “Haori”, second only to Monpe* * The number of advanced Kasuri players is rapidly increasing! * The number of “Kasuri experts” who wear Kurume Kasuri with a dashing haori is rapidly increasing.
The texture of the fabric, created by careful dyeing and weaving, blends into modern styles.
Just by wearing one layer, it is very useful for creating a “stylish” style. By the way, the long happi coat worn at Hakata Gion Yamakasa is also made from Kurume Kasuri.

* 5. \Held simultaneously! / *
* ■“Important Intangible Cultural Property Kurume Kasuri” is also on display! * A special exhibition of “Kurume Kasuri”, which has been designated as a national important intangible cultural property, will be held. (Cooperation: Important Intangible Cultural Property Kurume Kasuri Technology Preservation Association, Kurume Kasuri Technology Preservation Society)
Kurume Kasuri was designated as a national important intangible cultural property in 1955.
Initially, representatives of “tekubiri”, “indigo dyeing”, and “hand-weaving” were recognized as holders, but since the production techniques have been passed down as an organization since the Edo period,
Due to the amendment of the law in 1976, the “Association for Holding Sparrow-shaped Acquired Heritage Cultural Layer Dyeing Techniques” was certified as a holding organization.
Kurume Kasuri, which is an Important Intangible Cultural Property, uses yarn that has been dyed according to the pattern in advance for both the warp and weft threads, and the patterns are matched while weaving.
Production requires precise calculations and advanced technology, and takes a lot of effort and time.
You can experience the charm of Kurume Kasuri more deeply at the exhibition corner of cloth items that have been certified as important cultural properties.

* ■2024 Kurume Kasuri New Works Exhibition Award-Winning Works* The “Kurume Kasuri New Works Presentation” is held every year by the Kurume Kasuri Association.
This time, we will exhibit all the award-winning works at the 2024 Kurume Kasuri New Works Presentation.
Please look forward to the latest award-winning works made with the reliable skills of craftsmen!
