Since the fabric is woven using a weft yarn with about 3,000 strong twists per 1m, a feature of the fabric are the fine irregularities on the entire surface known as the grains. Due to an abundant use of silk and the unique softness of the grains, it is a supple, delicate fabric that is unlikely to wrinkle, with a pleasant and soft feel against the skin. A material that goes back to the Edo period, the technology to make this fabric was brought through Kyoto and took root as one of the region’s large industries. It was then further nurtured by the rainy and humid climate and natural features of the Tango region.
