From February 1st, Ryohin Keikaku Co., Ltd.- company planning and developing MUJI- is releasing traditional Japanese textiles for its “Found MUJI” project.

With the project, MUJI introduces ten types of textiles made in regions that have long thrived with the particular dye/ weave production: Murayama Oshima kasuri itajime (Tokyo), Kurume kasuri (Fukuoka), corduroy (Shizuoka), Arimatsu/ Narumi itajime shibori (Aichi), denim needle punch (Yamanashi), and more. Special edition items such as throw blankets made of Murayama Oshima, handkerchiefs made of Kurume kasuri are sold at a number of MUJI shops. Limited to Found MUJI Aoyama Shop and MUJI Canal City Hakata Shop, traditional textiles are also available for sale.

Found MUJI seeks throughout the world to discover everyday commodities that have been used for a long period of time, then translates the established regional tradition to fit the qualities of our current lifestyles, and offers the reborn products at reasonable prices. Found MUJI is based in Aoyama where its flagship store stands. “Fortune Cans” stuffed with folk toys from different regions of Japan, knit wears made by natural, un-dyed Peruvian alpaca wool, hand- embroidered textile goods from India, crafts found in Lithuanian craft markets, to name a few, Found MUJI introduces and offers exquisite products discovered worldwide.
