Know-how / Specialty

Fujifu is a very old fabric, with a soft handle and quiet shine, made from wisteria fibres. Yushisha works it today with the wisdom of their ancestors, using their techniques and know-how. These ancestral techniques are also used to create new, original products. Since 1880, the Yushisha hand-weaving workshop has been producing silk according to the traditional techniques of the Tango region. Some 30 years ago - at a time when it had almost disappeared - the company rediscovered the Fujifu technique. Since 2010 the workshop has been locally cultivating wisteria to return Fujifu to its natural environment. This fabric is recognised today as a 'material cultural good' in Japan.
