We made the animation part for the “Kibiso Promotion Video”, a video to promote the brand image of “kibiso” silk from Tsuruoka, Yamagata prefecture.
Threads, which are spun for the first time by silkworm when they make cocoons are called “kibiso”. Because of ununiformity of thickness and solidity of these threads, it cannot be used for raw silk fiber. However, this thread has a high moisture retention, and used as an ingredient in skincare products. In addition, various natural “kibiso silk” products was made from this threads.
The “kibiso” character in the promotion video is cute and humorous silk worm which makes kibiso. The character describe the attractive qualities.
