Know-how / Specialty

At the foot of Mount Fuji, in Yamanashi, one finds the ateliers of Japanese enterprise Muto. This workshop specializes in the manufacture of fabrics from natural fibers such as silk, cashmere, wool, organic cotton, linen and ramie. From spinning to embellishment, their originality springs from their mastery of a range of expertise spanning the textile production chain, most of which takes place within the company. The development of their own fine threads, coupled with the use of traditional slow-shuttle looms, gives a light and airy texture to fabrics that modern looms, with their more rapid weaving, cannot achieve. Thanks to a local network of subcontractors, Muto incorporates numerous artisanal and industrial techniques of needlework, screen printing, inkjet printing and dyeing, including Aizome (an ancestral Japanese indigo tinting method) and Arimatsu Shibori (a tie-dye technique specific to the city of Arimatsu). This range of combinable techniques fosters the creativity of the Muto design process.
