Kinsya-Chirimen is a one of Hutakoshi-Chirimen fabric group. It is woven thinner thread and has lighter Shibo (irregularities texiture). It is called Mon-Kinsya-Chirimen with base woven pattern.
Chirimen is a fabric that uses yarn with almost no twist warp threads, and is alternately woven with strongly S-twisted and strongly Z-twisted weft threads. Therefore, with scouring, the cloth shrinks and the texture appears on the surface of the fabric with desired irregularities. There are many different type of Chirimen.
