* Soft Rayon CHIRIMEN Crape Textile
Chirimen- also known as silk crape - is a form of textile made of flat-woven silk. Chirimen is manufactured in a unique fashion. First, the base cloth is made by alternately weaving the warp, which uses untwisted raw silk, and the weft, which uses raw silk twisted about 3,000 times per meter.
The silk yarn is then compressed during the refinement process, which results in the untwisting of the weft, bringing a pattern of fine, bumpy-textured grains to the surface. Thus Chirimen textile is born.
Chirimen silk is a traditionally used for high-class kimono and Furoshiki. However, recently chirimen traditional technique has been adapted to take advantage of modern material such as rayon which makes this beautiful fabric more accessible while style remaining unique texture.
