The fabrics manufactured with the traditional technique have been handed down continuously in “Nishijin area, Kyoto” where “Kinran fabrics” have been produced and which is the most luxury fabric in Japan. And the fabrics we manufacture are woven with gold leaves wrapped around the core threads and with thin gold foils to describe the pattern, and we call it “NISHIJIN KINRAN”.
Our weaving skill has a long history. It has been used to create clothing and solemn items at the temples and the shrines in Japan since ancient times.
Japanese have been living with nature and in nature. Its spirit has been taken in the traditional Kyoto fabrics as a pattern of clouds, water flow, arabesque and butterflies.
