CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT OSHIMA TSUMUGI IS?
Oshima Tsumugi is a special kind of textile which possesses deep elegant colors and requires highly sophisticated skills to weave. It is produced within the Amami-islands as well as the Kagoshima city area. It is also referred to as a kimono. The textile is a silk fabric whose wrap and weft are pre-dyed. Oshima Tsumugi’s fabric is much softer and lighter when compared to other kinds of kimono’s but it is still comfortable and warm to wear during the winter.
The threads of Doro Oshima, for example, are dyed with plant dyes, and dipped in muddy water rich in iron to dye into the deep dark brown color. This alternate process is called “Doro Zome (mud-dyeing).”
Great for any aspiring samurai. In good condition, suitable for wearing.
