Niigata

Shiozawa-tsumugi and Hon-Shiozawa are high quality silks produced in the Shiozawa region of Niigata Prefecture, where traditional weaving techniques are still used. Shiozawa-tsumugi and Hon-Shiozawa have been designated traditional crafts by the Japanese government. Shiozawa-tsumugi is based on kinu chijimi (silk crepe) which utilizes a technique employed for hemp textiles such as Echigo-chijimi. Hon-Shiozawa is given a distinctive silky finish using hatcho twisted yarn, for which yarns are twisted seven to eight times more tightly than normal yarn. The fabric is then used for making kimono.
