Product description
Shawl made in pure Japanese silk. The product is hand-made, both the fabric and the paintings, made in Kyoto using the yūzen dyeing technique. It features flying cranes and the traditional mist pattern, hand-painted using pure gold leaf made in Kyoto. The base color of the outer is pitch black, and the inner is in a rich red.
This specific product was designed choosing colors and a painting style that are adaptable to any type of formal or semi-formal Western clothing, such as an evening dress or a women's suite, with the purpose of making it the perfect choice for special occasions that require beauty to accompany discreet elegance.

Instructions for use
This shawl is made in Kyoto, inspired by the traditional shawl designed for kimono. It is now worn to accompany Western clothing as well.

    

Care
For periodic cleaning: Wipe the fabric with a soft cloth lightly moistened with warm water. Wipe with a piece of cloth or paper afterwards, and let dry naturally.
Do not wash at home and do not immerse in water.
Note: Traditionally, yūzen-dyed fabric is rarely washed if at all. There are a few specialized services in Japan for those rare cases when such cleaning is deemed necessary. However, please be aware that different chemicals and washing methods are adopted in each country, and we cannot be sure that you will find a dry cleaning suitable for yūzen-dyed, hand-painted silk where you are located. If this helps, you may check that your trusted dry cleaning has the equipment necessary to treat delicate fabrics dyed using plant-based colors, and which include gold leaf. Although none of these materials are exceptionally delicate, particular care must be adopted to avoid causing discoloring or scratching of the paintings. Our recommendation is to consider this a special accessory for special occasions where the chances of it being stained or soiled are low.
