There are many more Japanese fabrics than just the traditional hand-crafted type. Japan produces a wide variety of materials, using high-tech methods that have utterly captivated brand designers from all around the world. To explore the theme of “Handcraft & Technology”, various production plants have been visited. Different factory locations procure the raw materials, produce and dye the threads, prepare the warp, weave the fabric, give it texture, and rigorously inspect the quality. The steps are many, and each one requires great professional skill and the complex division of labour. Behind the production of superior fabrics is a marvellous harmony of human skill and machine technology.
Found MUJI toured areas of production, established connections and interacted with locals in order to explore new ways of creation.
