Imported from Japan, rich solid color dobby weave fabric are the perfect coordinate for many traditional Japanese prints.  Woven on a special loom, dobby prints have a small, geometric design that gives the fabric texture and dimension. They are a little heavier than regular quilting weight cottons and have that wonderful woven dobby texture.  Dobby fabrics are stunning in quilts, garments, handbags and other projects. Try adding a little sashiko for that special effect.
