Splashed pattern comprised by small cross cloth with splashed pattern and splashed honeycomb pattern which include suri (do) ri, and are called fine splashed pattern by katsu (kuku) ri work is calm with unique elegance.
The unique, refined elegance of Shiozawa tsumugi is produced by its techniques of Kagasuri (mosquito ikat) - weaving in a Juji-kasuri (fine cross ikat), and Kikko-kasuri (turtle shell ikat) - weaving a fine hexagonal pattern, combined with the ikat resist dyeing process used for the individual threads before they are woven.
How to make
In cloth with splashed pattern Woven textiles by yarn-dyed plain weave, we use shubo (pile up) gi thread of silk floss for weft in raw silk and dupion silk to the warp. The process of manufacture is made with design, dyeing, cloth with splashed pattern, and it weaves and is classified roughly for finish. By weaving process, we finish weaving each cloth with splashed pattern thread to design based on drafting by hand.
Shiozawa tsumugi is a plain weaved product made of pre-dyed threads. Raw dupion silk threads are used for the warp, and hand-spun silk threads made from silk floss are used for the weft. The process is mainly divided into making the design, applying a base dye to the individual threads, ikat dyeing the individual threads again to create the pattern, weaving and finally finishing. During the weaving stage, each thread is woven one by one to ensure the final pattern of the design is produced correctly.
