Shijira weave has a long history dating back to the Meiji era as a fabric base used for Kimono and Yukata. The texture prevents the cloth from sticking to the skin of the wearer during the hottest months of the year and as a result of the low-tension weave is a very light, breathable fabric.

It is speculated that this type of fabric was discovered by accident, when cloth was left out in the rain. An uneven warp and weft combination followed by a sun dry resulted in a unique, "pucker" like fabric face.
