Dyeing and weaving handed down to Hirose, the castle town
Hirose Kasuri’s beginning is said to have originated in the 7th year of Bunsei, when Sadako Nagaoka, the wife and daughter of the town doctor Kensho Nagaoka, was taught the dyeing of kasuri from Yonago-cho, and returned home, and spread it to women in the town.
Until then, clothes were generally made of hemp, and this pattern and texture were attractive enough to accept the technology of the kasuri to the women of Hirose.
Hirose Kasuri is a fabric of cotton woven with a large pattern, and is woven so that it floats clearly by combining elaborate patterns and geometric patterns, and the texture increases as it is washed.
