About the Exhibition

Ishikawa prefecture, while a center for traditional textile production, also produces 40% of Japan’s nylon. Higher functionality is now being demanded of the domestic textile industry, which faces competition from inexpensive overseas products. The Kaji Group, an Ishikawa prefecture textile company, has used fine thread to create an unusually light and thin fabric, which it is providing to outdoor brands. This exhibition examines “TO & FRO,” a travel product giving play to the fabric’s features.
