Are you looking to hone in on your sewing skills and take on a new and unique project? A project where you will not only continue to sharpen your sewing skills, but you will also learn about culture and tradition? Then Japanese Creations has the sewing project for you!
Chirimen is a great sewing project that has been passed down from generation to
generation since 1603. The distinct bumpy texture of Chirimen is often hand sewn into modern and traditional accessories, whimsical ornaments, practical accessories and furoshikis (a cloth giftware). Its weaving technique was developed in the late 16th century. During the weaving process, the weft thread is kept tighter than the warp thread which gives the fabric its unique fine wrinkles. It often uses Kimono silk for a smooth finish.
When you choose Chirimen as your next sewing project, you will get the proper tools, instruction, and support you need to complete the craft. We have a FREE eGuide available for download. We also have Chirimen courses that will supply you with everything you need for the sewing project. You will get professional step by step instructions from Nobuko Naito, a renown master crafter of Chirimen.
