Vintage, maroon red violet colored yukata cotton - by the yard


This listing is for one yard (36 inches or 91.33cm) of fabric. There are multiple yards available. If more than one yard is purchased then you will receive the entire yardage as one complete length.

This beautiful cotton fabric is unused, old stock and would make an table runner, boro patch, cushion cover or sashiko piece. It can be used for apparel but please remember that kimono fabric is not as wide as other fabrics. 

This fabric is in excellent condition. I do not see any stains or holes. The fabric does have some creases, due to storage.

This cotton fabric has a maroon or deep red-violet hue. The fabric has a slightly open weave that makes it perfect for sashiko. The open weave can best be seen in the 9th photo where light is seen through the weave. The cotton has a slightly textured hand, due to the weaving, and a slightly stiff drape. The fabric has a stiffness that is similar to cotton, kasuri ikat fabrics. This is due to the starch therefore the fabric will get softer and more fluid after use and washing.

The last photo shows the colors most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were place in the photo for color comparison.

**When ironing it is recommended that cotton cloth be placed between the iron and the fabric to prevent shiny, burnished areas from being formed**

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage item so there may be small blemishes or marks although, I do not see any. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice one.
