The Tango peninsula (nearby Kyoto) is the birthplace of an exceptional textile savoir-faire. The most famous of them is the Chirimen, a silk with a unique texture, made from twisted threads. This silk, along with other fabrics manufactured in the region, has been used for 300 years in the confection of kimonos.
To celebrate this unique know-how, the region of Tango has entrusted Duvelleroy with 6 weavings from different ateliers, in order to imagine one-of-a-kind hand-fans.
Confronting cultures and know-hows across continents and times to build a bridge between traditional crafts and creativity for the future.
Miyashin is a traditional weaver of kimono accessory fabrics, founded in the late 19th century. Currently the company manufactures various types of silk fabrics incorporating the traditional techniques of the Tango region, among which it excels at those using hard twist yarn. Miyashin is capable of handling, in addition to those in silk, divers kinds of yarn including polyester, nylon cotton, linen and paper, as well novel expressions and textures. The Balloon shape is typical of Duvelleroy and responds to the scale motif of the fabric.
