34X20cm(13.4"X7.8")Hitokoshi Chirimen kimono fabric No.8(Yellow) (for Tsumami kanzashi making)
Beautiful fabric, HiItokoshi Chirimen.
Chirimen is unique Japanese weaving technique.
Made by the weft thread being kept tighter
than the warp thread during the weaving process,
Weft threads are twisted as they are woven…
resulting in unique and uneven texture after refining.
This uneven texture, wrinkles what we call “SHIBO”in Japanese.
Hitokoshi chirimen has smaller surface wrinkles
than other chirimen fabric.(Futa-koshi) Very soft texture.
The material is rayon, which is very durable and elegant.
You can make various items such as
Tsumami Kanzashi pouches, wallets, bags, dolls and so on.
