We are a Nishijin-ori workshop that has been in business for Year in Kinugasa, Kyoto We want young people and people who don't usually wear kimono to know the charm of Nishijin-ori. There are 5 hand-weaving looms on the 2nd floor of Kinugasa Kobo, where you can actually select the thread and weave the fabric. Use your hands, switch the warp threads with your feet, and thread the weft threads. When I can be rhythmic, I'm crazy about it. Even if it seems difficult, please be assured that the second generation Orimoto, who started from inexperienced, will teach you. The woven fabric will be made into a "strap", "coaster", "card case", etc. and will be mailed at a later date. Even movements that look easy can be difficult when you actually try them, or you can sweat, and the work that gives you a personality is very interesting because it makes a difference between your friends. Also, the overwhelming amount of obi and thread that can only be seen here. Please feel the scent and texture of silk thread. Introducing the process of Nishijin weaving and the actual fabric. If you let us know in advance if you would like to hold the event, we can hold it accordingly. Please feel Contact us us. The second generation of Orimoto will attend as much as possible.

Actually weave yourself!

You will be asked to weave yourself as much as possible in time, not on a tour. Actually moving your hands and feet and touching the threads can be a very rare and delicate time.

Choose an original color and choose an original item!

You can choose the prepared multi-colored colors yourself, and choose which color to put in at what timing, etc.! Also, I am looking forward to seeing how coasters will be sewn and delivered later.
