Enshuu, located on the western part of Shizuoka prefecture, is one of the three biggest cotton fabric regions in Japan. It's history dates back to the Edo period.
The plentiful water due to the proximity to the Tenryuu River, and the temperate climate, have made this region prosper as a cotton producer since ancient times and have turned it into a rich textile world, with craftworkers that put all their effort into their beloved fabrics.
They choose the materials really carefully, and weave by hand as far as possible, enjoying the process, interacting and playing with the threads, giving them a personality and a meaning, because that's just what craftsmen do.
This pattern, known as "rain splash" simulates the falling of the raindrops and it has been made by those Enshuu craftworkers and brought to you as a simple but elegant dress that you can wear for any ocasion.
