Diffrent types of fabrics / textiles:
Chirimen fabric is a thick, heavy silk crepe, a crinkled fabric made by the weft threads being kept tighter than the warp threads during the weaving process. Weft threads are twisted as they are woven, resulting in a uneven texture.
*Silk fabric (for Kimono)
Silk fabrics drape and flow beautifully, and are difficult to crease. However, silk fabrics stain easily and are difficult to clean. Although modern kimonos are commonly made from easy-to-care-for fabrics that are less expensive to produce, silk is still considered the ideal kimono fabric. Silk may be woven and dyed in many different ways.
