Born in the textile town, KOJIMA
Kurashiki Ribbon was developed and made by Marusei Orimono in Kurashiki Kojima, known as "a textile town". It was originally created to decorate and protect the edge of a Japanese Tatami floor mat. Its historical background, hundreds of sophisticated designs and durability has been inspiring avid crafters and artists to produce unique products.
