Feel the exquisite tactility of Banshu-ori textiles. The woven pattern known as hakeme (brush mark) is created by alternating a number of different threads to give a brushed appearance. The fabric is finished with two separate surface treatments to add a smooth sheen as well as a finely creased texture as if it has been washed over and over.

Shimada Textiles is a textile manufacturer with over 90 years of history in Nishiwaki, Hyogo, one of the main Banshu-ori regions of Japan. The region is home to yarn-dyed textiles (where pre-dyed yarns are woven into a pattern) and the company creates original fabrics working with highly skilled craftspeople across all stages of production.

Banshu-ori is known for its yarn-dyed process whereby pre-dyed yarns are woven into patterned textiles. Interweaving warp and weft yarns of different colours and materials produces a wide array of expressive designs. Stripes and checks are a speciality, with the overlapping threads creating a delicate richness.

Nishiwaki is a region abundant in nature. Access to ample water supply is crucial in every step of the Banshu-ori process from dyeing, weaving and finishing, and the local Kakogawa River has sustained the tradition for over two hundred years.

We created this notebook to be the kind that fits on a bookshelf and becomes part of a treasured collection over the years.

The soft blue-grey print on white OK Fools paper provides a subtle backdrop ensuring your words are front and centre. The grid will guide you in all tasks from writing to drawing diagrams and tables.
