Kokura-ori was a unique textile that was produced at the beginning of the 17th century by the feudal clan of Kokura area in southern Japan. The cotton cloth, woven in a vertical stripe pattern, was prized throughout Japan to make beautiful fashion. Thick and strong. Soft and smooth. The artisans of SHIMA SHIMA recreate this traditional fabric with new designs and colors; a modern take on this beautiful historical craft.
SHIMA SHIMA's Kokura-Ori Napkin is thick and sturdy, but incredibly soft to the touch. It is close stitched on all sides to be used at the dinner table or perhaps to bring vibrant color to your living space.
