This is a traditional style fabric suitable for hand or machine stitching. It is classic for sashiko and boro stitching, but equally suitable for sewing clothing, soft home decor projects and country quilts. Use it to take you modern embroidery to a whole other level!
It is yarn dyed 100% cotton with a slight roughness. The colours resemble natural plant and mineral dyed cottons, which contributes to their traditional fabric appearance.
Size: 19 1/2" x 14" (35cmx50cm)
Made for Olympus, Japan, who do an excellent job of maintaining the authentic look of traditional fabrics while providing the modern quality and care features we want: it is colourfast, durable and machine washable, with minimal to no shrinkage.
Sakizome-momen fabric is a dyed yarn cotton fabric. Dyed yarn fabrics are made from yarn (threads) that have been dyed before the fabric is woven. This gives it interesting colour variations, plus it means the colour is embedded right through the cloth, not only on the surface.
This fabric is made in Japan for Olympus and meets their consistently high quality standards for fabrics.
