Shikami Taishi(Brocade with Design of Shikami)
In Horyu-ji temple, Nara, Japan, they have been preserving a piece of fabric called "Kantou Nishiki" which is said to have been owned by Prince Shotoku (574-622 AD). Thus, this design has been called as the Taishi Kanto(Prince Stripe). This piece is a warp-patterned KASURI weave (flecked-patterned weave) designed with curved lines which look like the grain of wood. We have woven into warp-patterned brocade with the arranged lines in multi colors showing like a lion opening the mouth, or SHIKAMI (biting lion), leaving the atomosphere of KASURI weave.
