Cutting cutting interweaving
In Nishijin ori, a professional craftsman named Kiriya breaks down to make this fabric. About 0.3 mm, it becomes the thread of the finer hair. The cut foil is woven one by one by the hand of the craftsman. The pattern drawn on the original Japanese paper is woven into order. When the craftsmen weave the foil thread, it is called the "pulling" foil because it pulls it to the herd politely by one so that the foil thread does not turn over.
