Gorgeous authentic Japanese vintage kimono made from chirimen silk.
The kimono has been dry cleaned but in the interior of the kimono some signs of wear remain. The exterior is in mint condition.
Chirimen, a Japanese textile made of flat woven silk (also often known as silk-crepe). It’s primarily used for kimono and home textiles as it’s a particularly durable fabric and such high-quality silk that it can be dyed several times. It is created by weaving raw silk with raw silk wefts that have been twisted around 3,000-4,000 times per meter. The yarn is then compressed and untwisted bringing out the signature bumpy texture, known as shibo.
