Azumino-Momen Fabric, Royal Blue
Please select all options.
Woven and hand dyed in small batches in Azumino, Japan, this 100% cotton fabric is perfect for sashiko, embroidery, clothing, boro, mending, soft home furnishings, and quilted throws.
This fabric is a thicker cotton with a weave that makes it lovely to hand stitch. It will wear well over time, is preshrunk, colourfast, and machine washable. (Like all cottons it hates hot air, dry on gentle heat)
The word momen means cotton, so the name Azumino-momen means this means this cotton fabric is made in Azumino, Japan.
I choose this fabric for its thicker weight, saturated colour, and subtle surface texture. It is dyed in small batches after the yarn (thread) has been woven and treated in a process that makes the distinctive texture permanent.
Each piece is 18" X 21" (54cmx45cm)
Suitable for hand or machine sewing. If you are interested in yardage e-mail me. I can order it in.
This fabric is made for Olympus Ltd in Japan. For more about the quality of their fabrics see this blog.
