This Tsumugi fabric is made for Olympus in Japan. It is a fine quality cotton version of the very expensive antique tsumugi silks of the past. The fabric is woven on a black warp with some soft slubby-ness. This creates the distinctive appearance of tsumugi cloth, and combined with the earthy tones of the weft thread colours, makes it similar in appearance to the original Japanese tsumugi cloth. The cloth is lightweight.
