Sevenberry Japan Nara Homespun cotton canvas fabric - Bamboo and traditional designs


This listing is for a 1/4 yard (9 inches or 22.9 cm), fat quarter (18 inches x 21.5 inches or 45.7cm x 54.6 cm), 1/2 yard (18 inches or 45.7cm) or 1 yard (36 inches 91.4 cm) of fabric. Please select the length you wish to order using the drop down box. There are multiple yards available. You will receive the entire yardage as one complete length.

This cotton fabric was created in Japan and has dyed, off-white bamboo and traditional designs over a deep, indigo blue colored background.

This is a 100% cotton, medium weight cotton fabric. The fabric has an open weave. This can be seen best in photo 8, where the light is seen coming through the fabric. In some cases the white from my cutting table can be seen through the fabric. Photos 5 and 9 show the fabric over a black background.

The fabric has a smooth, woven texture and slightly stiff drape.

This fabric is perfect for home accessories (such as pillows, cushion covers or drapes). It's slightly open weave makes it perfect for use in sashiko or boro projects. It would also make a gorgeous tote bag or table runner. It can also be used for apparel or quilting. If using this fabric as a tote bag I recommend lining the bag with a heavier lining fabric.

The 9th photo shows the colors most accurately. Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photos for a color comparison.

    I was thrilled to received my whole package of SASHIKO supplies and cannot wait to get started on my Japanese embroidery journey. I picked the fabric patches, the yarn, the needles and leather thimble. I wish I had taken a picture of how they were wrapped so beautifully and enticingly but I was too excited to open it. All I could say was that it was delicious and wrapped in a way that was very Japanese if one knows anything about their way of wrapping gifts. It would make a great gift for someone who would like to try this embroidery style. I am so glad to have found this store. I lived in Japan and love anything Japanese. Thank you for your attention in wrapping it and getting it to me so quickly. I am very excited. The design and dye of the fabrics is incredible.

    Beautiful fabric, thank you! Arrived safely :)

    Love this fabric and this seller.
