Oriental delights within specialistauctions handmade category!

Delightful Japanese handicrafts from seller chibichibinoriko522

Many of this seller's items are made using Japanese ' Chirimen ' fabric - which is a fabric made using a traditional Japanese weaving technique. It has the unique feature of what the Japanese call 'Shibo'..... soft wrinkles that were developed for this material way back in 16th century Japan.

The wrinkles are created by alternating and twisting different threads into different directs in the weft. These wrinkles appear because the weft is stronger than the warp in the looming process. Chirimen fabric is mostly used for beautiful Kimono outfits, but is also used for craft projects such as flowers, dolls, toys and as this creative seller shows.. in jewellery and jewellery boxes!


Not only are these items beautiful.. but they are beautifully priced too!
