public_access_description
Noriko Tsuiki has revived the techniques of kokura-ori from her native Fukuoka in south-west Japan. Using cotton threads she dyes herself, Tsuiki weaves densely striped fabrics which reveal a supreme sensitivity to colour. This length of fabric is entitled 'Thunder of Cascade' and is inspired by the sounds and the atmosphere of a waterfall. 2120 warp (vertical) threads have been used (60 threads per centimetre), three times as many as in normal plain weave cotton. Natural plant extracts of indigo, pomegranate, and the leaves of oak, Japanese chestnut and fragrant olive, have been used to create the many shades of black and grey.
