This listing is for one pre-printed sashiko sampler cloth in a golden brown tsumugi tsumugi color. The pattern washes out of the cloth with water. Please use the pull-down box to select the color panel you would like to purchase.
This cloth was created by Olympus Japan for BeBe Bold of Australia. It features 7 traditional patterns printed with water soluble ink over Olympus' Tsumugi Kofu cotton.
Olympus' tsumugi is a gorgeous fabric that is created in a similar manner to that of silk tsumugi fabrics. The warp threads of this fabric are black while the weft threads are a gold-brown color creating a golden brown hued cotton. The light to medium weight cotton has natural slubbing giving the fabric a wonderful texture. The fabric has a subtle sheen and soft, woven texture. The different colored warp and weft threads provide the fabric with a wonderful depth of color that changes depending on the light source. These tsumugi cottons are absolutely gorgeous!
The entire cloth measures about 44 inches long x 6.25 inches wide (111.8 cm long x 16 cm wide).
Each square measures about 5.75 inches square (15 cm).
This cloth would be the perfect addition to a quilt, table runner or hanging display piece.
Please refer to the last photo for the most accurate representation of the color. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.
This item is 100% cotton and is made in Japan.
Do NOT iron the fabric prior to removing the pre-printed pattern or the pattern may not wash out completely.
To remove markings:
*Do not iron or get the cloth wet until the stitching is completed.
*Hand wash in lukewarm water with mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly.
*Iron while still moist on low temperature. Place sashiko cloth face down onto folded bath towel, prior to ironing, to prevent the stitching from being flattened.
