Evaluation

Raise silkworms, grow cotton and linen, spin into yarn carefully by hand, dye with colors extracted from plants, and weave. All of these processes are done in a consistent way. This is an extremely rare and favorable state of affairs, where a society has been built to create cloth. Especially the design method which makes use of the characteristics of the materials and specializes in colors makes us anticipate the possibility of expansion into the global market. There is decisiveness in their theme to evolve handicrafts into items close to modern life. Among others, the jury appreciated their clear direction aimed at handing down traditional techniques of dyeing and weaving.
