Amid much trial and error, the Izutsu daredevil weaving team endeavors to create the seed for novel, alluring, high-quality textiles. Stealth technology, maiko, nature and the seasons, Kyoto's traditional and historic environs, the SR-71 and Apple products are just a few of our inspirations.
We are collaborating with a long established Kyoto washi paper dealer with the intent of developing a new kind of paper - woven paper! Handmade washi has been spun into two-tone yarn-like threads and then they are woven into this 'paper' fabric at Izutsu's weaving workshop. This novel textile is a work in progress.
