The silk industry, which was among the leaders of modern industry in Japan, was formerly a mainstayof the Japanese economy. It flourished from the last days of the Edo period through the Meiji Restoration,an age when modern culture flowed into Japan from the West. The Tomioka silk mill in Gunma wasestablished in 1872 under government management, and the silk industry spread out from there to everypart of Japan.Silk was a familiar material, used for kimono and other kinds of clothes and bedding. When syntheticfibers came on the market, silk left the world of the kimono, and in recent years a silk kimono is almostnever worn. Silk has a luster which isn't seen in other material; in lightness, feel, quality and the way thefabric breathes, it is a remarkably excellent material. The charm of silk, which comes from its beauty andthe way the fabric breathes, cannot be found in other fibers. It is really the queen of fibers. I would like topropose that this wonderful material, a world treasure of which Gunma can be proud, can be put to creativeuse in the fashion business field.
