Have you heard of Hakata textiles and dolls? We’re very excited to introduce and welcome the unique artisans and products from Hakata, an area located in the southern Japanese island named Kyushu.
The main material of company Hakata Ori Textiles is silk. Japan has produced the best quality raw silk, which is often used for Japanese kimonos, after improving the breeding of silkworms for a long time. Hakata-ori textile is a beautiful silk fabric and one of the most well-known traditional Japanese craft arts, with a history of more than 770 years. These techniques are now used for interior products!
When it comes to Hakata Dolls, locally produced unglazed clay is used to make Hakata doll figures and is colored very carefully by hand, so that the artisans can, in detail, furnish distinctive calmness and meticulous expressions to the Hakata Dolls. The themes of Hakata Dolls vary from “beautiful women” to “Kabuki players”.
