This is a new, high quality, cotton fabric. This fabric was created in Japan and is an Chocolate Brown (brown black) color. This 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 cotton was 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 weave is slightly open making it perfect for sashiko and boro projects.

It would be suitable for apparal, quilting, bags, home decor, sashiko and boro projects. The high quality of this fabric makes it a wonderful cotton for use in creating heirloom projects.

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