A print from Japan with an antique, almost baroque look. Bands of different ornate designs run diagonally across the width of this silk.

Chirimen crepe silk has a grainy texture and pebbly surface. Lightweight silk with a bit of body, a dry hand and no shine. These pieces were formerly part of a kimono and are in excellent condition. 100% silk from Japan.
