The silk textile is woven with the Chijimi technique. Chijimi involves using two different threads: a smoothly spun yarn for the vertical line and a heavily twisted spun yarn used for the horizontal line. These two differently spun threads create a textured surface covered with many tiny crinkles called Shibo.
This textile is dyed with a calming green that contrasts with the graphic's vivid colors depicting a sensu (folding fan) and a suzu (bell). The textile is in good condition with the potential to be repurposed into a variety of uses today. The imagination is required to see the possibilities in this small, whimsical textile with the bygone color combination.
