Tokushu Kiito (Special Raw Silk)

In the Omi area, local farmers have been making special raw silk as a side product since the beginning of the Edo period.
In general, spring silk is used for the strings of Japanese instruments such as the Shamisen and summer/autumn silk is spun into material for Noh costumes.
Also, this raw silk has been used for high-grade Nishijinori brocade due to its fine quality.
