Tango Chirimen silk crepe

Chirimen is a Japanese silk crepe - a form of textile made of flat-woven silk.

Although there are many places in Japan who used to produce Chirimen, Tango in Northern Kyoto is one of the most famous region. Tango has been the place of silk production since more than 1300 years ago.

Tango chirimen is not only beautiful but has very soft touch on your skin, so it is ideal for a shawl like in the photo above.
