Chirimen Craft Museum

Posted on 27 February 2012

Travel date: 29 October 2010
Location: Saga-Arashiyama area, Kyoto

Previously I did mention to make a post about Chirimen Zaikakukan (ちりめん細工館), or in English, the Chirimen Craft Museum – well I think now is the time, so here you go!

According to this page, chirimen is a traditional weaving technique that was developed in the late 16th century in Japan and the cloth or silk fabric that made from this technique is called chirimen as well. I’m not too sure about the technical stuff behind it but I just love the rough texture of these fabrics. And the stuff they made – the chirimen crafts are too adorable to be missed!

Although the pricing of these chirimen items isn’t exactly on the cheap side, but it definitely worth a trip down to take a good look at these crafts for those who are interested. They have branches in other parts of Kyoto too, but I think this one has the most complete collection.

Alrighty, photos time.

Mini wagashi sets (traditional Japanese sweets) that look like bunnies ^^

Mini yogashi sets (Western-style sweets)

Some messy Chinese zodiac animals

They have bigger items too, but the mini ones are so much cuter

More sushi!
