Kasuri is a Japanese word from the verb kasureru meaning “to blur”. This method was born in ancient India and was transmitted via Southeast Asia and Ryukyu to Japan. It creates patterns in the fabric through a dye process whereby threads are bound or resisted before the dyeing. First, the yarn is tied, so the dye does not soak in. The tied part remains white after the dyeing, so it becomes the pattern after it is woven.
