Shifu is an intriguing japanese technic.

It was developed by poor people in need of warm clothing, but over time it was refined by skilled weavers into an elegant alternative to other tectiles. What makes shifu so remarkable is the material from which is woven, the intricate method of producting kami-ito, thread spun from sheets of handmade paper, or kigami.
