The Chiri-Men Craft Museum

I have the loveliest younger brother ever. He just got back form a trip to Japan and bought me the cutest miniture fabric sushi set from the Chiri-Man Craft Museum in Kyoto. It came to me packaged in the best of Japanese packaging - 2 cute bags and stickers galore. Above is a great vege basket.

Eveything is made out of Chirimen silk crape which is woven from two types of silk threads twisted in different directions by turns in the weft. The famous wrinkles emerge after the fabric is washed.
