Handwoven Ueda Tsumugi
“Tsumugi” is the Japanese word for the Pongee, a soft silk woven cloth. Since the ancient times, the Ueda in Shinshu region is known as the “Land of Silk” and “Homeland of the Tsumugi”, for its abundant production of fine silk products. Blessed with abundant resources, the artisans of the Ueda region have wove the “Ueda Tsumugi” since the Edo Period (1603~1868). The simple yet refined stripe and cross-hatch patterns of woven silk has been appraised by many Japanese people.
These small zipper pouches are made with the same fabric used for Japanese Kimono, artisans re-utilizing the leftover Tsumugi fabric to good use. These pouches can be used to store cosmetic supplies, small travel goods, and so on.
