Chirimen is a crepe-like cotton or silk fabric with a rough, grainy (bumpy) surface texture. The texture is the result of a special weaving technique (developed in the 16th century) in which the weft threads are twisted to such an extent that they tend to pull together during the weaving process.
Japanes crepe is primarily printed with traditional Japanese patterns like Sakura, i.e. cherry blossom motifs, which stand for beauty, awakening, loyalty and transitoriness. They are suitable for use in making kimonos, modern clothing, bags, purses, pockets or cords.
Please note that the crepe texture will disappear when washing the material.
