JASM Fundraiser Chirimen and more 2.0
Sunday, November 19, 1pm-7pm
12160 Technology Dr.,
Eden Prairie, MN 55344
We have received a generous donation of Chirimen suites and a variety of items from Yukari Tokiwa-san to support JASM.
The chirimen suits are one of a kind designed by Hitoshi Tamura of Shisendo. They are gently used, and in very good condition/quality.
Chirimen is a plain-woven silk crêpe made of high twist raw silk yarn. It is a soft fabric that doesn't crease easily, and its signature crimped surface texture (shibo) is what distinguishes chirimen from other silks.
Chirimen is very popular fabric not only in Japan, but all over the world.
Tamura slowed down on his creation lately, so it is becoming difficult to find his work, but you can have it with just $50 donation.
You will receive one piece of chirimen clothing with $50 donation. If you would like to have matching jacket and skirt, you need to donate $100. Here is the preview of the items you will see at the fundraiser. As this is the second fundraiser, we may or may not have the same ones in the preview. This is just a tiny portion of what we have. Please take a look.
Now a days, his work is sold for about $300 a piece or more.
