This authentic rinzu, chirimen Japanese silk fabric is not only luxurious, it's also incredibly versatile. Perfect for window dressing or home upholstery, as an addition to your gown (fashioned into a stole), re-purposed for casual and on-the-town outfits alike.

Traditional ougi-sensu Japanese folding fans, pattern is found throughout, directly woven with the fabric. An absolute piece of Japanese art!
