With the many processes involved in its production, Kurume Kasuri takes a great deal of time and effort to make. The traditional technique that dates back over 200 years has been handed down over the generations despite the ebb and flow of the ever-changing world of dyeing and weaving. Recognizing the historical and artistic value of the technique, the national government designated Kurume Kasuri as an important intangible cultural property in 1957. To this day, Kurume Kasuri, which is used in a wide range of everyday goods such as Japanese clothing, Western clothing, interior goods, and knick-knacks, remains popular with many people as one of Japan’s most recognizable textiles.
