Fujifu, the wisteria textile, is made from the fibre lying under the bark of the branch of the wisteria. The fibre is boiled in hot water with wood-ash. The highest quality alkaline wood-ash is used. It has to go through more than 10 processes to achieve the wisteria fabric.
“Splicing” the fabre to make the yarn is perhaps the most important. The fibres have to be hand twisted together and then further spun for strength. Knots must be avoided. Once woven wisteria fibre has an exceptional pleasant touch. Fujifu shows a touch the clever and thoughtful mind of the ancients.
