This 100% organic cotton fabric was imported from Japan. It was dyed with kakishibu (persimmon tannin). This imparts a beautiful brown-tan color on the cotton. It has a lovely organic hue that will darken with age and use. It was dyed in such a way as to give it an uneven, crinkly look and this gives it a wonderful texture.

The kaki-Shibu dye also acts as an insect deterrent and prevents mold. Fishing nets and stencil paper are also often dyed with kakishibu due to these reasons.

The color of kakishibu dyed items will gradually change due to exposure to ultra-violet rays, oxidation, temperature and humidity, therefore the color will vary throughout the trim itself and over time it will change.

The cotton has a slightly open weave and almost a "leathery" like texture. It is a light weight canvas and it has a stiff drape due to the kakishibu.

The fabric would be suitable for home decor items, apparel, quilting, "boro" pouches and accessories. It would be perfect for sashiko projects or for patching/mending patches.

The last photo shows the color most accurately. Crayola brand crayons are shown for a color comparison.
