This listing is for one bolt of Japanese, bleach - white, sarashi cotton fabric. Each bolt is 10 meters long x 14 cm wide.
This fabric can be used for shibori, screen printing, fabric painting and sashiko. The finished cloth can be used for numerous things including: towels, face wipes, sweat bands, cleaning, dusting, gift wrapping, fruit and vegetable bags and decorative wall hangings. The uses are endless! Sarashi cotton is traditionally used for undergarments, yukata, dish cloths, haramaki (stomach warmers) and fundoshi.
This fabric has a smooth, woven texture. It has a slightly stiff drape that should become softer with washing and use. It has a similar feel and thickness as a crisp, cotton handkerchief. The fabric is lightweight with a slightly open weave.
This fabric is stiffer and rougher feeling that the Ise Momen tengui gauze fabric. It also has a tighter weave than the gauzy, open-weave Ise Momen.
**This "Gold label" sarashi is an inch wider than the "Blue Label" seen here: www.rochestertextile.com/listing/964957597/japanese-sarashi-cotton-10-meters
The "Gold Label" also has a tighter weave and is smoother and slightly stiffer than the "Blue Label". The last photo shows a close-up comparison of the two sarashi fabrics.
The fabric is available in a bleached white cotton color.
