Fabrics
In Japanese, "Kofu" originally means "traditional fabric." It has been made out of natural fibers such as silk, cotton and linen, and used for Kimono clothing as well as accessories and interiors for hundreds years in Japan. Today, many kinds of Kofu were developed and refined locally and independently in many areas of Japan. Some examples of Kofu are Chirimen, Yuzen, Kasuri, Ohshima, Tsumugi, Sarasa and Ai, which names derived from the methods of weaving and dyeing, or from the names of the fabric producing districts.
