Hand-painted blanket made of Chirimen Kimono silk, remade in Amino, Kyotango
The pattern of this blanket is called Komon. The size of the symbols is small. The dyeing process of Komon is said to be very difficult as the template for coloring is not as big as the fabric, the template has to be moved many times. This moving is more difficult the smaller the symbols on the pattern are. The white flowers somehow reminded us on the white daisy used a lot in Switzerland as a symbol.
Dimensions: ca. 120cm x 180cm (+-2cm)
Material: 100% silk
Made in Japan
The blanket can be hand-washed with cold water, nevertheless a professional chemical cleaning is recommended as the weaving structure of Chirimen silk is very sensitive.
