Japanese 100% cotton fabric.
This Japanese fabric is printed with a classic print, reminiscent of chrysanthemum (kiku) flowers. Traditionally, this pattern was achieved using a technique called katazome. In this technique, a stencil had to be carefully cut out of a special paper called katagami. The stencils, known as Ise katagami, were then used to apply a reserve on the fabric, which was then dyed with indigo. Finally, the reserve was removed with water, revealing the pattern.
The motif on this fabric is printed in off-white on an indigo blue fabric, paying homage to this traditional pattern.
Flat fabric made with slightly thick threads, resulting in a lightly open fabric, with some transparency and good drape. This arrangement and thickness of threads transmits a touch of rustic, traditional fabric, reminiscent of those woven by hand. This gives name to this series: "Rustic Indigo"
Perfect, for example, for a kimono cut jacket.
Idea: You can mix different prints from this series with fabrics from your favorite old jeans, and give them a second life in the form of a jacket, bag, or patch them up using the sashiko technique. If you need sashiko needles and threads, you can find them HERE
