SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 AND SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.


The exhibition of traditional Kasuri fabrics and the demonstration of the process of creating and making these fabrics will be carried out by the Hoki Shiawase-no Sato weaving school, under the direction of Ms. Fukui Sadako of Kurayoshi City, Tottori Chiefdom, Japan. This school aims to spread and preserve the ancient kasuri technique, which dates back to the Edo period (1603-1868),
This year marks 20 years of the relationship between Tottori and Catalonia (Barcelona-Capellades). The Tottori region, located on the coast of the Sea of ​​Japan, has, like Capellades, a long paper-making tradition. Artisans in this region make handmade paper following the ancient Japanese paper tradition, Inshu washi.
It is within this confluence between Kurayosi and Capellades (washi and beard paper), that various fabrics made with cotton fiber and Japanese paper will be presented.
The characteristic patterns of kasuri fabrics are created by weaving the fabric with previously dyed threads that are then woven into complex designs. The word kasuri literally means "scraped," and this style takes its name from the scratched appearance of the outlines of its drawings.
