Olympus Japan pre-printed sashiko patch mending fabric - Indigo blue kofu - tsumugi yarn dye


This listing is for a 1 cloth that is 8 inches x 39.5 inches (20 cm x 100 cm) in size. This cloth has 6 pre-printed sashiko designs. Each design is about 4.75 x 6.5 inches (12 x 16.5 cm) in size. Olympus Japan created this pre-printed fabric to be used as patches for clothing but it would also be beautiful for use in a komebukuro (rice pouch), smaller quilting, home accessory or sewing projects.

These sashiko patterns are printed on Olympus Kofu-Tsumugi, indigo hued cotton. Kofu-Tsumugi is a yarn dyed fabric. These fabrics are created from yarn that is dyed BEFORE weaving it into fabric. Due to this, the fabric has a wonderful variegation and depth of color. The warp threads of this fabric are a blue color and the weft threads are a black color. This gives the fabric a deep indigo hue. The fabric has some slubbing (bumps) which gives it a wonderful texture. It is of a light to medium weight and has a slightly stiff drape. The designs gradually wear away when the fabric is washed.
