This technology was born in the lase half of the Meiji era(1789-1853). Before these machines were used, the tying process was conducted by hand using doupion silk and cotton. Later, this material was replaced by a better quality silk.

Due to the attention to quality, the stoles are completely manufactured under the care of Shuen-Rencontre, from weaving to dying to finishing.
Color is the first to catch one’ s eye, therefore when selecting one’ s own attire, this is the most important part in considering first impressions. Everyone has a different face and different tastes in color. When the ideas of the designer and wearer come together, a new fashion chemistry is revealed. At times, the designer may focus internally, however Shuen-Rencontre wants to focus on the wishes of the wearer. Shuen-Rencontre hopes to maintain Oshima Tsumugi heritage while creating a new tradition for the next generation.
