Orimono (織物) refers to textiles or woven fabrics— a word often used when describing kimono wear and obi belts. Requiring the skills and techniques of a team of craftsmen, and made on large traditional looms, this craft of textile arts has had a long held history in Kyoto.

Kyoto boasts a textile district, known as Nishijin, where the intricately designed obi sashes, and kimono fabrics are hand-woven with incredible detail. Ayaginu machiya house celebrates the history and craft of the orimono by incorporating these designs within its light fixtures, zabuton cushions, and more. Delicate paper lanterns illuminate the tatami-lined rooms, kimono fabric line the inside of a lighting fixture above the stairs, and bright greenery that change color with every season within the tsubinowa garden.
