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.
