The Beginning of Takeyari Canvas


Production began following the marriage of Ishigoro Takeyari, a farmer and trader in the Kojima region, and Ume, an accomplished weaver, and this marked the beginning of Takeyari’s history. Ume, who was known locally as an excellent weaver, began to receive orders for kakuobi (stiff sashes for men) and soles for tabi socks from cotton merchants that had heard of her reputation. As time passed, Takeyari fabric was taken in boxes made of paulownia wood and entered into expositions and competitive exhibitions in Osaka and Tokyo, where it won awards.
