Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten, based in the ancient
capital city and textile region of Nara, has been creating
fabrics for over 300 years. Founded in 1716
they are the only company from that era that has preserved
the narasarashi weaving tradition. With their unchanged insistence
on traditional techniques and manually spun yarn and woven
linen, the firm creates new linen goods for contemporary
life under the theme "New Japanese Style".
