Atelier Kyoto Nishijin
Nishijin silk, Gamaguchi long wallet with Kyo-kumihimo strap, gingham check, women's, made in Japan
Nishijin weaving and Kyo-kumihimo, a competition of traditional techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation!
Beautiful gingham check woven in Yasura warp
*Yasurata warp is a warp with two warp colors, white and black, on a single loom.
There are various color combinations, but this time we chose black and white warps.
One of the characteristics of woven fabrics is that the warp and weft threads intertwine in various weave structures and change subtle shades depending on the warp color.
When weaving a multi-colored pattern such as a gingham check, the colors may appear muddy if the warp is only one color, but the Yasura warp used for this product can change the warp on the surface according to the color of the weft, resulting in more beautiful colors.
The delicate textile qualities that cannot be expressed in prints, and the exquisite color changes that can be enjoyed depending on the way the light hits the fabric.
The original Nishijin silk fabric, made of pure silk with no extra processing, has a delicate touch every time you touch it, and the beautiful luster unique to silk is a bliss that only those who own it can feel.
Original Kyo-kumihimo strap that matches the body fabric
This is an original braided Kyo-kumihimo strap made only for this product, matching the color of the fabric of the main body.
By using the same color scheme as the gingham check of the main body of the wallet, we have enhanced the completeness of the product.
The strap itself is detachable, so you can attach it to another item, or attach your own strap to the wallet and enjoy decorating it however you like.
The strap makes it easy to carry, and it is easy to put in and take out from a bag.
The material is pure silk, which is woven by hand with many fine threads by craftsmen, making it strong and thick. You can enjoy the beautiful luster that only silk can offer.
*This method of braiding is called "Edo-uchi".
It is also called "Yatsugumi" because eight balls (weights) are used to tie the strings together.
The simple structure of the cord is utilized to create a beautiful color scheme.Please enjoy the beauty of the color scheme, in which multiple colors scattered throughout the entire piece make up a single beautiful cord.
The round part of the strap is called "odamaki".
It is made by winding a hollow hollowed-out circle with threads that are pinched together, and since it spins around and around, it has become a synonym for "to repeat.
The language of flowers called "odamaki," named after this ramie ring, includes "I will get it" and "I will win decisively.
