This box is made by pasting "Chirimen", onto a paper box that has been formed using cardboard or a paulownia wooden box "KIRIBKO". Chirimen is a fabric with an uneven surface called crepe. It is a durable fabric that has been used for kimono since ancient times. Chirimen technique was introduced from China to Senshu Sakai (Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture) in the Momoyama Period (1573-1600), and later to Nishijin, Kyoto, where it developed into "Gozome Chirimen" and "Kyo Chirimen".
Chirimen has a wide range of uses, and is mainly used for high-end Kimonos, Furoshiki (wrapping cloth), and Obi fabrics in kimono. It is also used as women's clothing fabric, and is used for various items such as blouses, jackets, coats, dresses, skirts, and pants. The characteristic of Chirimen is the clearly defined surface grain. These ripples prevent wrinkles and give the fabric a soft and supple texture to the touch.
It is also used as a dyed fabric, and the reflections of the unevenness created by the grain can express beautiful hues, resulting in deep and unique colors.
