This is the gold yarn that is using a high-purity gold leaf


This is the gold yarn that is using a high-purity gold leaf.

Each crafting process needs manual work.
The yarn gives off beautiful luster.

First the base paper made of Japanese paper is glued with urushi lacquer.
A piece of gold leaf is spread over the paper and pressed carefully by hand.
The condition of the lacquer determining the luster of the gold leaf or fixing gold leaf depends heavily on humidity and temperature of the day.
Craftsman's experience and intuition for many years is required for identifying the condition of the lacquer.
Then the gilded paper is cut into long thin strips and each piece is closely wound around core yarn in spiral.
The pure gold yarn is made up in this way.

The material of core yarn is as follows:
Silk yarn dyed yellow is used for fine count.
Rayon and cotton yarn is used for low count.

Gold and silver yarn is one of the traditional crafts of Kyoto,Japan with a very long history.
It has been used for ornamental apron of Sumo wrestlers or KESHOUMAWASHI or for embroidering on dress. On drop curtains and sleeves of stages and theaters, and even in various festivals held throughout the Japan you can see the decoration of the yarn on the special cover of textiles, KESOUMAKU for the Japanese parade float, DASHI or the portable shrine, MIKOSHI. The gorgeous brightness amuses eyes of a lot of people.

They have continued the production of gold and silver yarn in Kyoto since its inception in 1897.
Nowadays it is used not only for Kyoto local traditional industries but also for traditional crafts in various places in Japan and also for textiles regardless of country. Terashima's gold silver yarn, gold leaf, and vapor deposition film and so on have been used.

"Along with the changing times, technology associated with the production of gold and silver yarn and the materials have also changed in various ways. It is a matter of course to keep the old traditions and texture, we are also seeking new texture or new technology , also we think giving variety of suggestions to customers is one of the most important roles.

My sticking to

That you are careful when you manufacture it?


Production of gold and silver yarn, because it uses the lacquer and gold leaf, humidity control, temperature control is very important.
In the management of temperature and humidity, I'm coming completely different quality. Shine of gold is completely different. So, by the humidity of the day, come decided also work time. Hundreds of thousands of sheets of gold leaf, for example, should not to be stretched to within several hours, you can come to compete with time. Also, when you stretch in straight Yunoshi the yarn, I am game between the temperature and the humidity.

Even when you turn off, as the pitch of the twist and cut width is kept in the best state, requires advanced skills to finish at 1/100 millimeter accuracy.

The management of such a process, I use the most care. Those using metallic yarn, since often it is made as a souvenir, in order to maintain its quality and has great care.

In particular, pure gold, sterling silver yarn is very much part by craftsmen, in the market, but I do not quite distribution, why, luster that gives off of this gold I will be very beautiful.



The gold and silver yarn, do you have a long tradition?


Culture of gold and silver yarn, has been nurtured over the 1500 to 2000 years.
Whether the gold and silver yarn was present from when? Detailed document is not yet left Unfortunately, in Rome Empire in Europe, in the era of the Tang Dynasty in China is already so there is a trace of gold and silver yarn was present.

Gold of pieces excavated from Shiga Prefecture Kabutoyama ancient tomb in Japan, it has been the most old gold in the country. I'll say that it is the ruins of around 6 century, what age of over the Yayoi period from the late Jomon period. It seems to have been used for decoration embroidery of noble people of costumes identification. Perhaps along the Silk Road from Europe, China, the Korean Peninsula, it would had been transmitted to Japan. Over the 1500 to 2000 years, and I think that the culture of gold and silver yarn has been nurtured, I feel the eternal romance.
