Japanese sarashi cotton - 10 meters - blue label


This listing is for one bolt of Japanese, bleach - white, sarashi cotton fabric. Each bolt is 10 meters long x 13 inches wide.

This fabric can be used for shibori, screen printing, fabric painting and sashiko. The finished cloth can be used for numerous things including: towels, face wipes, sweat bands, cleaning, dusting, gift wrapping, fruit and vegetable bags and decorative wall hangings. The uses are endless! Sarashi cotton is traditionally used for undergarments, yukata, dish cloths, haramaki (stomach warmers) and fundoshi.

This fabric has a smooth, woven texture. It has a slightly stiff drape that should become softer with washing and use. It has a similar feel and thickness as a crisp, cotton handkerchief. The fabric is lightweight with a slightly open weave.

This fabric is stiffer and rougher feeling that the Ise Momen tengui gauze fabric. It also has a tighter weave than the gauzy, open-weave Ise Momen.

The fabric is available in a bleached white cotton.

I currently reside in New York State and am required to charge sales tax on items shipped to New York state. ETSY is required to collect sales tax for a number of states as well as collect and remit VAT for countries withing the EU. ETSY is the credit processor and website host for my private site and are therefore required to collect and remit sales tax for items shipped to some parts of the USA as well as the EU.

Items shipped to the EU where VAT has been pre-paid will contain documentation showing that this has been paid. It is possible that additional charges and handling fees may be charged at delivery. The buyer is responsible for all customs charges, VAT, taxes and handling fees.
