I'm now introducing several kinds of Yuzen Chirimen Crepe fabrics after so many requests from my customers for Atelier JADE http://www.h7.dion.ne.jp/~atelierj/
Yuzen Chirimen uses a traditional stencil dyeing technique ever since 8th century in Kyoto area. It is traditionally made of silk, but these days it's made of rayon or polyester.
The texture is so delicate and gentle. And the traditional patterns are so gorgeous. But please take good care of it as it will shrink if you soak in water (hot or cold).
You'll experience totaly new fabric with beautiful colors and gorgeous texture. Traditional "kanzashi", bag and other small zakka things have been made of Chirimen for hundreds years in Japan. Enjoy the Japanese tradition in modern way!
