It is an experience of making original placemats, table centers, coasters, etc. using a loom. ["Kimono Town" Tokamachi] Tokamachi has been actively used for textiles since ancient times, and has been famous as a production center for high-class textiles to this day. In the past, weaving was a part of life for the locals, with women in the village gathering to spin and weave, especially during the snow-covered winter months. [What you can do with this experience] Let's experience weaving in Tokamachi while receiving guidance from textile craftsmen. In this experience, we will use a hand-woven loom that can be easily handled, and use a fine thread for the warp and a finely torn cloth for the weft.
