What is Hakata Japan?
Oshiumi textiles factory incorporation was created in 1928 but Hakata Japan launched as a brand in 2000 in NYC. "Advanced classicism" is the concept of our brand. We protect the traditional beauty of Hakata textiles while creating progressive and stylish designs with high skills and excellent techniques. The different design combinations of Hakata textiles are limitless so we strive to provide our customers with modern and original Hakata textiles.
Symbol of Hakata textiles
The most traditional pattern of Hakata brocade is called kenjo which literally means "an offer". They were offers given to the government during the Edo period (1603-1868). Typically, there are three main patterns. The first one represents Buddhist altar equipment, the second one is thick lines that show the parents protecting the children and the third one is thin lines for the children, the filial piety. We keep on creating traditional Hakata kenjo with original new designs for our modern everyday life.
