Indigo dyed kasuri fabrics are quite stiff but will soften with repeated washing and use. The indigo dye will bleed and the fabrics should be hand washed several times in cold water to remove the excess dye. Allow about 2 - 3% for shrinkage. Iron kasuri fabric while still slightly damp with a towel over the fabric on the "cotton" setting. Indigo dyed fabrics have a tendency to develop a shine when ironed on a high heat.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the indigo dye, kasuri fabrics may bleed. It is recommended that you pre-wash kasuri fabrics prior to using the fabrics in your quilt or project.
