Japanese - Kofu Shima Momen - Yarn-Dyed Shot Cotton - Maroon, Grey & Purple - KF-2720E - is currently on backorder. You may still purchase now though and we'll ship as soon as more become available.
Imported from Olympus Co. of Japan, the Kofu Shima Momen fabrics are high quality fabrics made by combining traditional Japanese weaving and dyeing methods with modern advanced weaving technology.
The Kofu Shima Momen is a yarn dyed fabric created from yarn that is dyed BEFORE weaving it into fabric.
These fabrics are also a "shot" fabric which means they have different colored warp and weft threads like the tsumugi fabrics. The different colored warp and weft threads help to add to the depth of color in the fabric.
The black colored weft threads are slightly thicker than the warp threads which add some slubbing, also similar to tsumugi, giving this fabric a wonderful woven texture.
This authentic Japanese fabric, could be used for creating a traditional looking kimono. It is also suitable for apparel, quilting, bags, sashiko and home decorator items.
