We aim to be your Japanese fabrics select shop.

We are proud to present a completely new series of Japanese patterns that you have never before experienced! In collaboration with the young and energetic Kyoto based ‘Garaga Works’ design group, we are calling these fabrics the ‘Japan File’ series, which means “Fabrics that Japanese people like and favor.” These materials contain elements of traditional Japanese patterns, yet they are entirely unlike any past designs in the Japanese fabric industry and can be used for modern textile creations. The new concept and challenge of our company is to transform traditional Kyoto style into present day fashionable patterns. For our first release of this series we have created patterns on a canvas base fabric which is useful for home fashion applications.

千總は老舗の多い京都の中でも屈指の老舗として知られる呉服商で、創業450年余の歴史を誇ります。京都の『友禅染』は今や日本の代表的な染色技術として知れ渡っているわけですが、この京友禅の発展の歴史の中で千總は常に中心的な役割を果たしてきたのです。昨今の市場では和テイストの定着にともない、多くの着物古典柄の生地が出回っていますが、この度のCHISO DESIGNシリーズでは『新しい和柄発見』という商品コンセプトのもと、今までの友禅柄にはないモダンで斬新な柄を千總が所蔵する膨大な量の友禅裂地コレクションの中からピックアップ再現しました。これも千總コレクションの豊富さ、奥行きの深さゆえに実現できたと考えています。日本を代表す
る伝統工芸である京友禅、そのパイオニアであり京都屈指の老舗千總の保有する繊細で優雅な友禅のデザインを和装の中だけで伝えるのではなく、多くの人に知っていただきたい、そんな願いを込めてCHISO DESIGNシリーズを発表させていただきます。
