Shiga Omi Linen
Suirajofu Linen Series uses Shiga Omi Linen produced in the east of Biwa Lake. The location, Omi, has been notable for its linen production for generations.
Due to its well-known high quality, linen products from Omi, Shiga were offered to the Shoguns (military dictators) and Shake (religiously influential families) as gifts in the past. As time proceeded, the linen products became popular gifts in the Edo period (A.D.1603-A.D.1867).
Though the linen weaving techniques were learnt from Uzumasa, Kyoto, the craft developed and flourished in Omi, Shiga. The widespread and popularity of Omi linen can be credited to the trading merchants from Omi.
Hoping to share this beautiful craft to the world, we have included Omi linen as part of our curation for our staple products.
