These patterns are permanent and will not wear off when washed.

Olympus Japan created the fabrics in this kit to be used as patches for clothing but it would also be beautiful for use in smaller quilting, home accessory or sewing projects.

All items in this kit are created in Japan by Olympus. Sakizomemomen is a 100% cotton, 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.

The cotton fabrics in this kit were also woven using slightly heavier weight, slubby yarn that gives the fabric a vintage or aged look. This midweight fabric has a soft, woven texture and slightly stiff drape. The fabric has a slightly open weave that makes it perfect for sashiko projects.

The last photo shows the color of the cotton with the printed sashiko designs most accurately. Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photo for a color comparison..
