Dyed fabrics／Yonago City, Tottori Prefecture
In our society, there are far more people with physical and mental disabilities than we can imagine. Orimonya was born as a “place of cooperation” to provide people with such disabilities who wish to work with the joy of working through textile work. Our main material is cotton, and we do everything from cotton cultivation to yarn spinning, plant dyeing, and weaving.
There are two reasons why we insist on weaving. One is that it is handwork that can be easily adapted to each individual’s abilities and aptitudes.
The other reason is that there are many different work processes, from simple to complex, before a piece of cloth is completed, making it easy for everyone to participate in the work. And through the process of creating a piece of fabric, we aim to build a cooperative relationship in which each person becomes a leader of the work.
