In Japan, weavers specialize in weaving while other artisans focus on spinning and dyeing. This allows the weavers to perfect their skill and expertise.
Woven kimono wools include multi-colored weaves, stripes, plaids, and more. All the woven wools in the Okan Arts shop range from 30 to 60 years old—and many are no longer made.
Okan Arts recommends washing kimono wools in your washing machine, set on Delicate with the cold wash/cold rinse cycle. Our preference for clothes detergent is Seventh Generation.
Please don’t throw your wool into the dyer but instead lay out or hang to dry. This prevents any creases from being cooked into your wool from the heat of the dryer.
Press with your iron set on Wool. Dry cleaning is not recommended.
