The history of Nishijin-ori begins in the Kofun period.
The Hata clan, who immigrated to Kyoto from China, passed on techniques of sericulture and silk weaving.
Production of Nishijin textiles began during the Heian period.
After the 11-year succession dispute during the shogunate's politics, textile production resumed in the western camp, and it came to be called Nishijin-ori.
Nowadays, it is prized as one of Japan's leading high-class textiles.
The fabric used in jewelry is finely woven using the finest silk.
Products made with Nishijin-ori are characterized by their unique luster and texture.
This product is all made by hand by craftsmen.
