HAKATA TANTANMEN TORIDEN - FUKUOKA PARCO

Toriden, the famous mizutaki (chicken hot pot) purveyor, has forayed into the tantanmen business after the rave reviews generated by the tantanmen lunch at its Yakuin shop. Using mizutaki stock as the base, the rich soup contains four kinds of chili peppers, original chili oil, and sesame paste. The aroma of sesame and the bite of the chilis combined with the underlying essence of chicken are a delight to the senses, especially the taste buds! Enjoyed as a whole, the dish is very well-balanced, with firm noodles, sweet chicken miso, a marinated soft-boiled egg, crunchy scallions, leeks and bean sprouts. The citrusy ponzu, yuzu-gosho (citrus pepper) and other condiments are all homemade, and the two-piece karaage (fried chicken) dish—one thigh and one breast—is also quite popular. (You can add it as set, too.) If you find yourself out and about near Hakata Station, you can stop by their shop inside Kitte Hakata.

t first glance, kasuri looks simple. It’s a cotton fabric that comes in various shades of blue with recurring patterns in white. Next to the bright colors of a silk kimono, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this textile is, frankly, plain. You’d be mistaken. Behind kasuri’s modest appearance is a remarkable process that begins with raw cotton and indigo leaves, and ends with a handful of craftsmen and women applying skills honed over centuries. While some workshops have opted to modernize production through mechanization, traditional kasuri production is still practiced at a number of workshops in Kurume, Fukuoka Pref. With 23 manufacturers, Kurume is one of the largest remaining centers of kasuri in Japan.

INTRODUCING KURUME KASURI 久留米絣

쿠루메 카스리 소개

久留米絣是一種看似簡單,僅用濃淡表現的 藍色綿織物。雖然質樸卻需要很高的技術, 是久留米地區經過 200 年淬煉的技術。 翻過紡織品的背面就可以了解製作久留米絣 的難度。一般的紡織品,是在紡織完成後才 進行染色,但是絣則是相反的在還是線的階 段就設計了花紋之後才染色接著紡織。請想 像一下藍底上有白色圓點模樣的絣的樣子。 在準備材料的階段時僅準備一根縱向的棉 線,然後先在此線染上正確規則相間隔的藍 白部分。然後再由這根棉線和橫向的棉線結 合,在藍底上漸漸編出白色圓點的圖樣。擁 有這麼複雜技術的人,在久留米地區僅剩下 數十人左右。完成久留米絣約需分成 23 道 左右的工法,在這裡大略整合之後說明。

언뜻 단순해 보이는 남색 목면 직물 쿠루메 카 스 리 . 하지만 뒷면 을 살 펴 보면 쿠 루 메 카스리의 특징을 알 수 있습니다. 바로 무늬가 들 어간 천인데도 앞뒷면이 구별되어 있지 않다 는 것입니다. 일반적으 로는 천을 만든 뒤 염색 및 인쇄 작업을 거치지만 카스리의 경우 실 단계에서 무늬나 문양이 들어갈 것을

생각해 염색하고 천을 짭니다. 감색 바탕에 흰색 물방울무늬의 카스리에서 날실 하나를 뽑아 보면, 감색과 흰색이 규칙적인 간격으로 염색된 것을 볼 수 있습니다. 이 날실에 맞춰 씨실을 정확히 짜 맞추어 냄으로써 감색 바탕 위의 흰색 물방울무늬를 만들어 갑니다. 매우

복잡하고 품이 드는 이 기술을 계승 중인 사람은 현재 몇십 명밖에 남지 않았습니다. 쿠루메 카스리의 제작 공정은 약 23가지로 나누어져 있으나 여기에서는 간략하게 소개하겠습니다.

Patterns are planned on paper first. The dark areas indicate which parts of the thread will be covered.

CREATING KURUME KASURI STEP 1 ▸ THE PATTERN Used for everyday wear, Kurume kasuri features bold, geometric patterns. The designs may be simple, but creating them is not: kasuri’s designs aren’t printed on after the fabric is made, but before. The patterns are first copied onto what looks like a long strip of graph paper, where each square represents a fraction of the finished fabric. The layout is used to calculate which parts of the thread should be dyed, and which parts left white. STEP 2 ▸ TYING Kurume kasuri is made from white cotton which, before dyeing, is knotted into bundles. The parts that are to remain white are covered, while parts that are to be dyed are left exposed. This process is completed by a specialist tyer, who passes the bundles on to the dyer. STEP 3 ▸ DYEING True kasuri gets its color from indigo – a dye made from the leaves of the indigo plant. The leaves are dried and fermented into a paste, and then brewed into a liquid and left to ferment a second time. Master dyers make several vats of dye with different concentrations of indigo, which they use for six to eight months at a time. 20 | Fukuoka Now | #229 | January 2018

The thread is tied with knotted hemp. Covered sections will remain white.

步驟1 :圖案 用來供應大眾日常穿著的久留米絣,其簡 單的花紋圖案是特點。根據傳統的圖案和 作者的個性為原則,在縱向和橫向綿線的 分配上 ( 哪些部份要染色,哪些部份要將 白色拿掉等等 ) 設計之後做成「繪圖紙」; 接著將線染色清洗數次,一邊考慮線的收 縮問題,一邊將重新繪製圖案再做成「下 繪」。

步驟2 :整線 做為重要無形文化財的久留米絣必要條件有 :⑴使用粗芋做成的麻繩。⑵使用純正天然 藍來染色。⑶需使用手工紡織機完成。 「整線」 是絣完成最後模様之前的原點,是會影響成 品的重要步驟。以棉製成的線的自然色就是 久留米絣圖樣中白色的部份。在染色前會用 粗芋麻繩將想變成圖樣部分(想留下來的白 色部分)固定包覆住避免染色。

1단계: 무늬 서민들의 일상복이었던 쿠루메 카스리의 특징은 단순한 무늬입니다. 전통적인 무늬와 제작자의 개성이 드러나는 도안을 토대로 날실과 씨실의 어느 곳을 염색할지를 계산한 에가미(絵紙)를 만든 후, 염색과 헹굼 등의 과정을 거치게 될 실이 수축할 것까지 계산하여 도안을 수정한 시타에( 下絵)를 작성합니다.

2단계: 묶기 중요무형문화재로서의 쿠루메 카스리 인정 조건 다음과 같습니다. ⑴아라소우(粗芋)로 실을 묶을 것 ⑵순정 천연 쪽으로 염색할 것 ⑶수작업용 직기로 짜낼 것. 실을 묶는 작업은 카스리 무늬의 원점으로 완성될 직물에 영향을 미치는 중요한 공정입니다. 천의 자연스러운 색이 쿠루메 카스리의 무늬가 될 흰색 부분입니다. 염색 전, 무늬가 될 부분을 아라소우로 단단히 묶어 색이 물들지 않게 합니다.


feature 3단계: 염색 예로부 터 염료 로 사 용 된 쪽 잎을 건조 후 발 효시킨 일본 토쿠시마 산 스쿠모를 사용합니다. 이것을 염색 장인이 땅속에 묻은 독에 넣어 2~3주 동안 양조시킵니다. 시간이 갈수록 서서히 색이 바래가기 때문에 이용 가 능한 기간은 6 ~8 개월 정도입니다. 염색 작업은 고된 육체노동으로, 실 뭉치를 액체에 담가 짠 뒤 실 한줄 한줄이 공기와 접촉할 수 있도록 바닥 에 강 하게 내려칩니다. 원하 는 색이 나 올 때까지 약 4 0회 정도 이 작업을 반복합 니 다. 이 때 드는 노동 력 과 비 용 을 절감 하기 위해 화학 염료와 기계를 도입한 제조자도 있습니다. 덕분에 선명한 색상의 카스리도 등장하게 되었습니다.

Dyeing is an intense process that involves dipping a bundle of thread into the dye, wringing it out and then beating it against the floor to expose the thread to oxygen to fasten the color. The process is repeated as many as 40 times to achieve the darkest blue-black. The thread is then dried, creating one of Kurume’s most memorable sights: bundles of blue and white thread hanging in the sun, slung over bamboo poles or stretched across the fields to their full length – nearly a kilometer.

4단계: 천 짜기 염색은 전통적으로 남성의 일이었고 천을 짜내는 섬세한 작업은 여성의 일이었습니다. 무늬, 문양에 맞춰 전통 직기를 사용해 폭 약 36cm, 길이 약 12m의 옷감을 짜냅니다. 수작업이기에 숙련된 기술자라 하더라도 무늬대로 완벽히 실을 맞추어 짜내는 것은 불가능합니다. 염색 및 천을

Kasuri drying in the Kurume sun.

짜는 과정에서 발생하는 이러한 불완전함이 카스리의 특징이자 쿠루메 카스리의 가장 큰 매력입니다.

Dye is made from the leaves of the indigofera plant.

STEP 4 ▸ WEAVING The work of the weavers is mind-blowingly intricate: the bundles are separated into hundreds of individual threads, and then aligned and wrapped around wooden shuttles that the weaver uses to weave the weft (across) threads with the warp (down) threads. Years are spent learning each craft but, however skillful, no weaver can match each thread perfectly. Tiny variations create a distinctive feature: slightly blurred edges to the patterns. A flaw, perhaps – but also one of Kurume kasuri’s charms.

Traditional kasuri production uses hand looms to weave the threads together.

步驟3 :染色 依造古法將植物「藍」的葉子乾燥、發酵後 做為染料使用。染坊師傅會將「藍」埋入土 中經過 2~3 週的釀造期。釀造完成後的「藍」 因為會隨著時間而褪色,所以「藍」的利用 期限只有 6~8 個月。染色的作業是需要大量 的身體勞動,將一束繩束沾上染液後,為了 讓其充分接觸空氣必須不斷敲擊地面。而在 達到想要的濃淡色澤之前,約須經過 40 次 左右這樣的重覆作業。 現代為了減少勞動力和製作成本,改用化學 染料和機械的製造者也漸漸多了起來 ;因而 也出現了許多顏色鮮艷的絣在市場上。

步驟4 :編織 若是傳統上染色是男性的工作,那麼編織等 細膩的工作就必屬於女性了。按照繪圖紙上 的圖案,排列出所需要的繩線數,然後將線 分開後捲起 ;久留米絣的編織手法是使用傳 統的紡織機,編出寬約 36 公分,長約 12 米 的織物出來。因為是手工的關係,不管技術 再怎麼好,也不可能拼湊出百分之百完美的 圖案。在染色和紡織過程中出現的小瑕疵, 最後就成了絣的特徵並且成為久留米絣最大 的魅力所在。
