In the comprehensive study of the local elementary school, there is a lesson to learn about the local industry called "Explore! The pride of Nishimuta", and Mr. Noguchi, the director and senior managing director of Okamoto Shoten, gave the class together with Mr. Kubo Kasuri Textile, a weaver. I was.
This time, the format was for third-year students to answer questions about the history of Kurume Kasuri and what they wanted to know.
The mission of Okamoto Shoten is to pass on the culture of Kurume Kasuri, which has continued for 200 years, to the next 200 years.
In that sense, it was a valuable asset for the children to know that there are such wonderful textiles in our hometown.
Some of these students may use Kurume Kasuri fabric to create amazing works. It was a wonderful class that made me feel such excitement ♪
Finally, it seems that I will produce a leaflet that summarizes Kurume Kasuri.
I received one, but the questions and answers of the children were well summarized, and it was quite an interesting finish.
