Few fabrics have such a deep history to a culture as Bingo Kasuri fabric does to the Japanese, a textile that has been produced for over two centuries. Originating from the quiet town of Fukuyama City, Hiroshima, up until the 1930s, this fabric was hank dyed and sewn on a hand loom, making it extremely rare and unique. 

Starting during and following WWII, the mechanization of the production of Bingo Kasuri began, and the output of yardage grew substantially for this esteemed Japanese fabric (but still maintaining the labor-intensive Hank dyed aspect to production). Dyed with a combination of Natural Indigo derived from the Indigofera plant, persimmon juice and charcoal, the formula for this dyeing method has been passed down the generations.

Kasuri (or 絣) is the Japanese term for a fabric that has a color range of dyed fibers to create patterns and images within a textile. It is similar to Ikat dyeing, a form of resistance dyeing. Ikat is the predecessor to Kasuri techniques and was first develop during the reign of the Ryukyu Kingdom (modern day Okinawa), around 1200AD. Traditional Japanese fabrics have been produced with these techniques for centuries by highly skilled artisans, and are a renowned and revered material for the Japanese.
