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.
The Itoasobi Manufacture – which provides the fabric for this creation – excells in the “ribbon-ori” weaving, a technique using ribbons as yarn, employing an advanced weaving technique to avoid not only warp but also weft yarns from twisting. The graphic pattern of this fabric is enhanced by the rectangle palmette shape. The « Palmettes » shape stands for non-pleated hand-fans, where each “palm” is tied to the other by a thread.
