Asakura Senpu has been specializing in textile processing techniques since 1982. Key techniques include super water-repellent and quick-dry fabric processing, which led them to their appointment to develop the Japanese national Olympics swimming and gymnastics team’s uniforms.

 The furoshiki NAGARE project created by Asakura Senpu revisits the furoshiki scarf that has been part of Japanese culture for 1,000 years with their water-repellent textile processing technique, expanding the function of the furoshiki beyond its original purpose.

The furoshiki NAGARE was awarded the Good Design Award in 2011.

ASAKURA以獨有的技術製造出不透水 (water-repellent) 的布料,再造成不同類型的產品。主要的技術包括防潑水、快乾物料,因此也曾為日本游泳及體操國家隊製造奧運的制服。

其中 furoshiki NAGARE 系列是以不透水物料所製造的日式風呂敷,是日本傳統上用來搬運及收納物品的包袱布,亦可當作桌布、便當布來使用。

 Furoshiki NAGARE 系列更曾在2011年獲得 Good Design Award。
