Hon Shiozawa is woven using silk yarns with a strong twist in the weft. After weaving, the strong twist of the yarn is restored by rubbing it in hot water, which produces a fine texture called "shibo". The result is a fabric that feels soft against the skin and has a delicate, elegant pattern. Hon shiozawa is designated as a traditional Japanese craft.
