This is a new, high quality, crepe fabric. This fabric was created in Japan and has white and pink sakura (cherry blossoms) over a spring green (yellow green) background. The fabric has the look of a silk chirimen however, it is less expensive and easy to take care of.

The fabric is a 100% polyester, light to medium weight fabric. It has a chirimen crepe weave which gives it wonderful "crinkles". The crinkles give it a pebbly texture. Unlike some of the embossed crepe fabrics this fabric can be washed and will not lose it's texture after laundering. The fabric has a slight sheen.

The drape is very fluid and it would make a gorgeous dress or skirt. It could also be used to create a robe, hair accessories, infinity scarf, pillow covers, bag, purse or doll.

The last photo shows the colors most accurately. Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photos for a color comparison. The background color of the fabric matches the color of the Crayola brand "Green-Yellow" crayon very closely.

Lovely cherry blossoms on green background. Fabric is textured crepe with good weight. Can't wait to use it.

Beautiful fabric and received sooner than expected!

Color and texture are both pleasant. Made a few pretty face masks from a fat quarter with careful placement.

Very beautiful textile. Love it.
