This listing is for kakishibu dyed cotton twill trim. There are multiple yards available. Item can be purchased in 1 yard (36 inch), 2 yard (72 inch) and 5 yard (180 inch) increments. You will receive the entire yardage as one complete length. If you would like a different or larger amount please contact me and I can set up a special listing for you.
This twill, cotton tape trim is .25 inch (.64 cm) wide. The trim is flat and not rounded. I hand - dyed the trim with kakishibu (persimmon tannin). This imparts a beautiful brown-tan color on the cotton. It has a lovely organic hue that will darken with age and use.
The kaki-Shibu dye also acts as an insect deterrent and prevents mold. Fishing nets and stencil paper are also often dyed with kakishibu due to these reasons.
The color of kakishibu dyed items will gradually change due to exposure to ultra-violet rays, oxidation, temperature and humidity, therefore the color will vary throughout the trim itself and over time it will change. Please note that the color of the trim you receive may vary slightly when compared to the photos.
This lot of trim was recently dyed so it is a little lighter than previous lots. Please remember that the color of this trim will continue to change as it ages.
I dyed this trim to use as drawstring for komebukuro (rice bags) but it can be used for other projects such as art quilting, clothing, bag making and accessories. I included two photos of a komebukuro that uses this twill tape as a drawstring. Please note that these photos are just included as an example of what the trim can be used for and that the komebukuro is not included in this listing. For reference, I used two - 17 inch (43 cm) lengths of the dyed twill tape for my komebukuro.
The trim has a fairly stiff drape, due to the kakishibu, and it has a smooth, woven texture.
Please note that when multiple yards are added to the shopping cart, shipping cost may be overestimated. Please be assured that I always refund shipping cost overages greater than $1.00

This cotton twill tape is a lovely shade of light brown - looks very natural. It arrived promptly and was carefully wrapped. I will do business with Rochester Textile again.
