Okujun, unlimited handicraft

Yuki Tsumugi is a unique silk fabric, woven for nearly two thousand years in the city of Yuki, Japan. Okujun has been helping preserve this technique for more than 100 years, through the close relationships it maintains with highly experienced weavers.
Each original design created is subsequently attributed to a particular craftsman. Yuki Tsumugi is made from pure silk fibres spun by hand and then woven on a traditional Japanese loom known as a «Jibata» or «Takahata.» These light, soft and warm silks have a unique texture and handle.
This unique technique is included on Unesco’s list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
From February 18-20, 2014, Okujun participates in Maison d’Exceptions, the space at Première Vision dedicated to haute création.
