Japanese fabric - we now offer a fabulous selection of japanese indigo, Yukata and other japanese fabric. The Japanese Indigo patterns are authentic reproductions of fabric patterns that have been in use for years. The fabric is 100% cotton 44" wide.

Japanese Indigo - The use of the print patterns cut from tanned paper was devised in the EDO period (1600-1868). First a design was cut onto a print pattern made of tanned paper.  The pattern was then placed on a sheet of cotton cloth and a paste of glutinous rice was spread over it. The paste covered the parts of cloth where the patterns were cut out.  Once the cloth was dipped in the Japanese indigo dye, the parts not covered with the rice paste were dyed a deep blue. The tanned paper used for making the pattern consists of many layers of Japanese paper, glued together with persimmon tannin. 

Batiks - we offer a diverse selection of batik art panels in a variety of sizes.  These paintings have a wonderful assortment of themes - from nature scenes with cats, birds and butterflies, to exotic dragon prints.The mini batiks and batik paintings are great to use in clothing patterns and quilts.

In addition to our Japanese fabrics, we also have a wide variety of other quilting material including Hoffman batiks, and wearable art. We offer an online selection of exotic and vibrant fabrics, in a wide varity of patterns and colors. And, all our materials are 100% cotton. 

Don't forget to look over the wonderful patterns and quilt books available. We have patterns for wearable art, wall hangings, lap quilts, baby quilts and more.
