Kuso or Okuso is waste or garbage. In this case, it refers to the waste created in the production of hemp yarn: this kimono was woven from the detritus and crude materials left over from hemp yarn making. This waste, or okuso, was spun into yarn and woven by rural people to make their garments. Most likely the better quality yarn they created from hemp plants was sold to those that could afford it, probably urbanites.

Macrame is so hot right now and we’re totally addicted. There’s some fantastic macrame kits out there, but to get started why not grab any yarn, string, thick thread or twine you have lying around and try some of these! <3
