Kasuri is a weft ikat, where the weft threads are dyed before weaving. Warp threads may also be dyed before weaving to create more complex patterns, picture patterns are referred to as e-gasuri.

Characteristics

The most obvious characteristic of kasuri is the fuzzy (referred to in Japanese as "splashed") edges of the dyed designs caused by the variations in weaving already dyed yarn.
