Collection: artwork

Okamoto Shoten Co., Ltd., which develops the Giemon brand, was founded in 1971 as a wholesaler of Kurume Kasuri fabric.
Founded by the founder, Noguchi Tasuke, Okamoto Shoten is a company that has connected consumers with weavers who make Kurume Kasuri, by continuing to ask itself, "How can we make kasuri match the latest trends?" as the world's fashion shifted from traditional Japanese clothing to Western clothing.

Okamoto Shoten also has a large collection of Kurume Kasuri works by Living National Treasures and holders of Important Intangible Cultural Properties.
For the sake of the future development of Kurume Kasuri, there are many works that would be a shame to simply remain in corporate collections.
Therefore, we have decided to open up some of our collections.
We would be happy if you would display it as a piece of art in your office, shop, living room, etc.

The intricate production process of Kurume Kasuri is introduced in the video below.
