NUNOUS × Hirokawa
There are three regions in which was famous for Kasuri or an indigo dyed woven fabric. One of which is Kurume Kasuri, but it is not well known that it mostly made in Hirokawa.
Hirokawa has many factories and aterliers still making Kasuri. There has been many attempt and promotion, yet it is getting more and more difficult to make living just by it.
So we decided to take it to a next stage. We now make a new material with Kasuri, which can be used as an architectural material as well as substitute for wood and leather. Yes , the new material is thicker and denser as well as it can be made into different thickness for different purpose.
At the same time depending on how it is made, it can purely be an art piece by itself!
