Ushikubi Tsumugi


Ishikawa Prefecture


Ushikubi Tsumugi uses only hand-ground threads from the cocoons produced by two silkworms.

A major feature is that there are many unique knots in the weft (horizontal) direction caused by the intertwining of two threads.

It is also a very durable fabric, as it was also called Kuginuki Tsumugi.

It has been nurtured with the regional characteristics of Mt. Hakusan in Ishikawa Prefecture and the seasonal colors created by nature.

It is a silk fabric that you can enjoy the unique expression of Ushikubi Tsumugi, which is played by rich yarn dyeing techniques and colors, and dupion yarn.
