Plain weave is a type of weaving structure, and is the most basic weaving method in which warp and weft threads are woven by alternating ups and downs. It has the same look on the front and back, and there are many intersections of warp and weft, so it is resistant to friction.
Kurume Kasuri is characterized by expressing the pattern using the Kukuri technique, so most of it is woven in plain weave to express the pattern most effectively. Kasuri craftsmen focus more on tying and dyeing techniques than on weaving techniques.
Plain weave has a wide range of versatility, from hand weaving to wide woven fabrics using high-speed looms, so there are various textures depending on the thread material used and the density of weaving.
