This is a new, cotton fabric from Olympus Japan and is part of the Kofu "Classic Stripes" collection. "Olympus-Kofu" fabrics are high quality fabrics that are made by combining traditional Japanese weaving and dyeing methods with today's most advanced technology. These fabrics have the colors and patterns of vintage and antique Japanese fabrics.

This Shima momen is a yarn dyed fabric. Yarn dyed 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. This is also a "shot" fabric. Shot fabrics have different colored weft and warp threads, much like tsumugi or dupioni. The different colored warp and weft threads help to add to the depth of color in this fabric. This fabric has five different colored warp threads (white, olive red, black, violet) and black weft threads.

The black colored weft threads are thicker than the warp threads. These thicker threads also have some slubbing, similar to tsumugi, which gives the cotton a wonderful texture. This midweight fabric has a soft, woven texture and slightly stiff drape.

This fabric coordinates beautifully with tsumugi silks as well as cotton quilting fabrics.

It would be suitable for apparal, quilting, bags, boro, sashiko and home decor items. This fabric would also be wonderful for creating an authentic looking kimono.
