Shiozawa Tsumugi
Shiozawa Tsumugi (Pongee) is a silk weaving technique based on the linen weaving technique of Echigo Jofu, which dates back to around 1,770. It is characterized by the use of silk yarns for the warp and cotton yarns for the weft. The weaving is done by carefully matching the coloured individual threads. The result is a calm and elegant pattern. Shiozawa Tsumugi is designated as a traditional Japanese craft.
