What is Oigawa Kudzufu Weaving Studio?
Kudzufu is made at our Oigawa Kudzufu Weaving Studio. Near our studio, there is a big river called the Oigawa River. 2005 merger of the town caused our town named Kanaya to change its name to Shimada.
Our studio was established in 1952. From then we have been producing wall paper and covering. All these materials are from nature. 1998 we changed our companies name from Shizuoka kappu to Oigawa kudzufu and begun to produce new items like kimono, obi, and small items.
Concept of Oigawa kudzu cloth
