Tsumugi: is a silk fabric woven from the floss remaining in the silkworm cocoon after the full threads have been removed. By spinning these broken strands together silkworm farmers created a fabric for their own use. Today tsumugi is highly prized and one of the most expensive kimono fabrics despite its humble origins. Initially tsumugi fabric is very stiff, due to the starch applied during spinning, but the more times it is worn and washed,the softer it becomes.

Kasuri:Japanese word for fabric that has been woven with fibers dyed specifically to create patterns and images in the fabric. Also known as IKAT a resist-dyeing technique. The patterns have a blurred or brushed appearance.Ranging from simple mottled effects to abstract geometric motifs and free form representations of natural plant life. The warp and weft threads are resist-dyed in specific patterns. Prior to dyeing, sections of the warp and weft yarns are tightly wrapped with thread to protect them from the dye. When woven together, the un-dyed areas interlace to form patterns and many variations are possible. Kasuri patterns may be applied to the warp or to the weft; or to both the warp and the weft. There are many techniques used to create kasuri.
