Japanese Fabric

Have you seen our Japanese fabric section lately? If you're searching for something a little bit different for a new year garment project, now is definitely the time to take a look.

In addition to the ever-popular, distinctive prints of Nani Iro, we've some beautifully and equally distinct designer printed sateen and lawn with geometric designs and sharp colours, ideal for slinky, modern styles.....



Double gauze fabric is always a very popular choice in the shop for dress and blouse projects. Widely used for Japanese apparel because of the breathability of the two fine layers, it creates a lovely soft and drapey effect and clothes seem to be cool and light and warm and snug at the same time - impressive! We've recently added a new, double sided polka dot in 5 colourways to our range. Hmmm, what shall we make...?!


And something very seasonal and very Japanese, these textured woven fabrics - evocative of the Japanese geological landscape, think richly textured layers of limestone interbedded with pebbles and wave-worn shells....

We've a hundred and one ideas for these fabrics; we love the colour and texture and the horizontal patterning - we're planning pencil skirts, prim blouses, tunic dresses...

Watch this space, we'll be posting pics of our creations just as soon as our little fingers can stitch them!
