Silk that defy convention

“Eboshi” and “Emaki” woven with silk that is typically discarded
due to its thick non-uniform threads called “Kibiso” and “Tamaito”.
There are very few craftsmen who can create such thick silk fabric.
A texture that cannot be created with normal silk.
It is dyed with a technique called “Kusaki Zome” that appears natural.
It is a fashion item that can be used for both western clothing
and traditional Japanese clothing.
