Origin and History of Hakata Ori

tenple

In 1235, during the Kamakura period, Hakata Merchant Mitsuda Yazaemon, accompanied by the Buddhist priest Shoichi Kokushi (founder of Jyotenji, the temple of Hakata), set sail for Mingzhou in Sung China. Yazaemon mastered the five production techniques for weaving, vermillion, gold leaf, wheat noodles, and musk tablets. Upon his return to Japan in 1241, Yazaemon shared his newly acquired knowledge with the citizens of Hakata. However, the weaving techniques were kept within Yazaemon’s family and handed down to the next generation, adding unique weaving technique.

250 years later, Mitsuda Yazaemon’s descendant, Hikosaburo, traveled once again to China during Ming Dynasty to study of the art of weaving. Upon his return, he created an improved version of a thick taffeta-like material with a raised stripe design known as Fusenmon and Ryujo. This fabric took on the name of its birthplace, Hakata, and become known as Hakata-ori.

Hakata Kenjyo-Design

Since Kuroda Nagamasa (the first feudal lord of the Fukuoka Domain, Chikuzen Province) presented this textile to Tokugawa Ieyasu (first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate “Edo Period in Japanese History”), the name of Hakata Kenjyo was born (Kenjyo means “present”).

There are fixed patterns of stripes and stylized “Dokko”, ”Hanazara” (both are motifs of Buddhist altar articles) in Hakata Kenjyo Design. Hakata-ori was designated by the Japanese government as Fukuoka’s Traditional Craft.

The special features of Hakata-Ori

Hakataori textile has delicate and elegant gloss. A lot of slender warp thread is used, and this is strongly woven into the weft with a tautness to create patterns. Yarn-dyed silk, such as silk thread, gold thread, and silver thread is used. The Hakata-Obi (Sash) also has thickness and tension, so it is hard to unravel. It has a reputation for making silk produce a distinctive sound when tying it.
