This brand name textiletells is a made-up word meaning "the textile tells", in the hope it will "expresses the fun of the textile" and "passes down the techniques of Japanese textile manufacturing". From textile manufacturing with original patterns, this textile is MADE IN JAPAN product.
textiletells was born here at Design House KAZE Corporation. We are a print textile producer for over 60 years working together with printing factories in Kyoto. Our custom designs requested from the apparel maisons in Japan and overseas were all created by our in-house designers.


The design is our original created by our designer who started up this textiletells brand. Features of the design are this emphasizing "line" and "space" based on Japanese inherent aesthetics which can be seen in Japanese paintings and Buddhist temples and such, and this black-and-white tone drawing the gradation of light. It represents the blend of tradition and modernity.
Our pattern printing is made one-by-one by hand at the atelier in Kyoto. The sense of the moment is applied on textile in each pattern printing. This pursues coincidental and inevitable beauty which mass production can never achieve. The value as one-of-a-kind art piece is here.
