Transforming legacy into novelty
The 3rd generation owner, Hori Tatsuaki leads the energetic team of workers. Initially a kimono producer, their strength is in its skill with luxury weaves, such as thick double-layered matelassé, often with metallic yarn.It is amazing to see the most challenging type of woven textiles are being born here daily. For example, matelassé made of metallic or flat yarns, with the elastic warp to give a three-dimensional effect. Another example is a fabric woven with the sequinned and unevenly spun yarns. They also created a fabric made of 40 percent of paper yarn. Their exclusive method made able to weave perfectly flat yarn without twisting. Along with fashion fabrics, their stage costume/material lines have attracted much attention internationally. Starting from the kimono, Horitatsu has been inspiring for all other weavers through it’s way of converting the tradition into the contemporary.
