Kurenai Japan hand stenciled slate blue wave pattern on indigo blue cotton


This listing is for a 1/4 yard (9 inches or 22.9cm), fat quarter (18 inches x 22 inches or 45.7cm x 56 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.

Please note that the full width of this fabric is 44 inches (111.8 cm) but the pattern is only 38 inches (96.5 cm) wide. The stenciled pattern runs down the center of the fabric so that the selvage sides of the fabric have a wide, undyed area.

This hand stenciled fabric features a gorgeous, blue hued wave pattern over an indigo blue hued background. This fabric is not dyed with botanical indigo so it is colorfast. The indigo hued background has a variegated color with lighter and darker indigo blue colors. This gives the fabric a wonderful, "rustic" look.

This light to midweight fabric has a soft, woven texture and slightly fluid drape. The slightly open weave makes it perfect for sashiko.

The 8th photo shows the color of the cotton most accurately. Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photo for a color comparison. The blue of the waves was very difficult to photograph. It is a slate blue (blue gray) hue that has violet undertones in some lighting. The color of the waves is most similar to the "Cadet Blue" Crayola brand crayon. Small swatches can be provided upon request.

This fabric coordinates very well with the Westex Noren Panels seen here: www.rochestertextile.com/search?q=westex+noren

The weight, texture and color of the fabric is nearly identical to the noren panels. Some lots of the noren match perfectly but the indigo blue color varies between lots so the noren you purchase may or may not match this fabric exactly. A photo of a noren alongside this fabric can be seen in the 9th photo.

The last photo shows this fabric alongside the coordinating beige wave fabric also from Kurenai. This fabric can be seen here:

This fabric would be suitable for apparal, quilting, bags (with interfacing), and home decor items. It is also perfect for sashiko or "boro" projects.
