Kitamura Tokusai Fukusa-ten Co., Ltd. Chanoyu Textile Shop SINCE 1712

Since 1712, we have been in business for 300 years in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. Our textiles are specifically used in Chanoyu (the way of tea). A fukusa, is a small silk cloth used in the tea ceremony to purify the utensils and set them on. Carrying on the tradition, Kitamura-Tokusai has kept the premium quality and exquisite texture of the special fine silk. And all fukusa, ko-bukusa and dashi-bukusa are carefully sewed by hand. We are pleased to introduce a part of our works.

However, we are afraid we do not offer online shopping, as it is difficult to express fully the quality of material as well as finished-product, or to convey the smooth texture of fabrics through photos as much as they do so for the beauty of the cloth designs. Now Tokusai produces approximately 400 patterns. We would like to welcome you to our shop in Kyoto, invite you to view our hundreds kinds of textiles, touch and feel our fukusa in person. We look forward to your visit to our shop.

If you do not plan to come to Kyoto soon, some shops will help you.

Please contact us if you have any inquiry.

We are sorry if some kinds are out of stock or take
some time to complete as they are handmade products.
Please be informed that below prices are for reference only.

Fukusa, approx. 27.5cm square double layered silk cloth for the way tea,
is used for purifying tea utensils. It also shows hospitality of the host.
