Tsuzure ori ( tapestry weaving )

A weaving technique that is also found in Gobelins and Coptic tapestries, Persian Kilim and Incan textiles. It is woven using the same technique as plain weave, but unlike in plain weave, the weft threads hide the wrap threads completely.

Colored threads are woven back and forth repeatedly to created patterns and borders. It was brought to Japan from China during the Asuka/Nara period, but the fabric woven was weak and had limited uses and in time, ceased to be produced. During the Edo period, weaving technique from the Song and Ming dynasties spread to Japan again, and tsuzure ori, with its artistic designs, started to be produced.
Gold/silver and colored weft threads are completely wrapped around the wrap threads, which requires skills beyond those required for Nishijin ori.
While a tool called “osa” is usually used for weaving, a comb or fingernails filed and shaped like a comb are used to separate the threads for making detailed and intricate designs.
Tsuzure ori obi fabric came to be used during the recovery period after the second World War.
