Chirimen cat doll

chirimen cat dollsThese cat dolls are Chirimen craft.
Chirimen is Japanese crepe.
Originally, Chirimen craft was made of small pieces of Chirimen fabric which were remained when they had made Kimono.
Chirimen craft is one of traditional Japanese craft.
But I think the design of these cat dolls is modern.
I took this photo in front of funabashi raile way station.

There are various kind of Chirimen craft in Japan, I will show you those pretty craft in this blog!!

Wow, at first glance it looked like my daughters room with rows of her stuffed animals. I fear she will never donate any of them because they all are her best friends.

Thank you for explaining this! It makes sense to me now. I see many different things at Japanese stores that say 'Chirimen' and never knew what that meant.
Thanks Nobu!
