Kokura Shima Shima Exhibition: From Season to Season

10:00–18:00 (Closed on Sunday and public holidays)・Jun 04, 2021–Jun 26, 2021・HULS Gallery Tokyo 6-4-10 Akasaka, Minato-ku

Kokura-ori, a sturdy traditional textile woven in vertical stripes, was once used to make hakama and obi for the samurai. It soon became a dying craft in the Showa Era, before textile artist Noriko Tsuiki succeeded in reviving its production and capturing its three-dimensional depth through multiple trials and errors. The fabric is intense and delicate, with a strong yet soft structure. Kokura-ori brand Kokura Shima Shima honors the time-honored tradition behind this special technique by bringing the tapestry to the modern lifestyle. In their exhibition at Huls Gallery Tokyo, Kokura Shima Shima will showcase their latest Spring 2021 collection, inspired by the four seasons in Japan. In addition to the three new original patterns, the exhibition will also display various everyday items such as bags, furoshiki (traditional Japanese wrapping) and apparel collection.
