Hand-painted blanket made of Chirimen Kimono silk, remade in Amino, Kyotango
We did not find out a lot about this fabric. The pattern is a Komon-pattern which means the size of the symbols is not very small. It is silk-screen printed.
Writing on the blankets:
– Producer name: 衣装苑 (Ishouen)
– Designer: 中村弥吉 (Nakamurayakichi)
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.
