Nishijin-ori textile brand PRAWEFT
Since the time of the Onin War in the 1400s, Nishijin-ori craftsmen have been producing world-class textiles unique to Japan, mainly for kimono, obi, and other Japanese garments, but also for use in interior decorating. This multi-colored, intricate, and picturesque style of textile, which is primarily made of silk interwoven with gold and silver yarns, is both unique and world-class. Nishijin-ori, which has transcended the realm of traditional Japanese clothing, has unlimited possibilities, not only as a fashion textile but also in the fields of bags, accessories, and interior decorations. Down through the generations, Nishijin-ori craftsmen have always adapted and changed with society, developing new traditions and techniques. PRAWEFT’s mission is to expand the potential of Nishijin-ori in the field of fashion textiles, in the same way that Japan has become an indispensable country in the field of fashion by incorporating the sensibilities of Japanese garments, cultivated since ancient times, into Western-style clothing.
