Plan description

Kokura textiles have been strong in jacquard silk fabrics. Industrial jacquard looms have 14,200 warp threads, and weft threads come and go between them, but silk is a natural fiber, so even within the same thread. There is a slight unevenness in the thickness. The craftsmen adjust them, thread them, and keep an eye out for the loom to move smoothly. There are few highly specialized craftsmen in the production area, which is also the reason why requests from global brands come to Ogura textiles. Why don't you visit Kokura Textile to meet such highly rare and elite skilled craftsmen? ~ Flow of the day ~ ① Factory tour: 30 minutes tour of the process of making jacquard weave from invisible silk thread * For foreign nationals: Information on the day will be in Japanese only.

Major maisons and that brand too! ?? Witness the moment when a very delicate silk jacquard is born

Many people don't know because we don't make final products such as bags and clothes, but at Kokura Textile, we weave textiles of brands that everyone knows, centering on silk jacquard weave. A tour of this program will allow you to witness the moment of birth of the highly delicate and highly skilled silk jacquard, which also deals with the world-famous Maisons.
