About Chizimi Fabric
Cotton crepe fabric or “Chizimi” in Japanese, with origins dating far back, was introduced to Japan by Ming dynasty weavers in the Tensho year of the Momoyama period (circa 1573). By strongly twisting the weft yarn during weaving, it produces a material that can retain its shape despite stretching or pulling. 。
・Chizimi is very breathable and effectively absorbs sweat, keeping you feeling fresh and vibrant all day long.
・Chizimi crepe cotton is one of Japan’s finest textile exports, and SOU SOU is very proud to offer a wide variety of products made of this versatile fabric.
*To ensure the longevity of the chizimi’s (crepe cloth) elasticity, avoid using a clothes iron on it.
*Due to the nature of the dye used, color variation or general discoloring may occur.
*When washing by washing machine, wash alone in laundry net for initial wash.
*Avoid using dryer; air dry recommended.
*There is a chance of staining from the dye, therefore avoid washing by hand or soaking.
