Experience being dressed in a kimono made of Ise cotton

Ise cotton uses singles, which are the most basic form of yarn. It is also yarn that has the finest grade of cotton, American made San Joaquin, at its core, and was developed by Kurashiki Spinning in the Meiji Period under the name of Mitsuuma (three horses). Singles are extremely difficult to weave as they break easily. Therefore, it is said to be impossible to weave without singles made of good quality cotton.
