Japanese Fabric - Azumino-Momen - # 43 Blue (Dark Navy) - is currently on backorder. You may still purchase now though and we'll ship as soon as more become available.
Azumino-momen fabrics are hand-dyed in the Azumino district of Japan (momen means cotton) hence the name Azumino-momen. Before the pieces are dyed, the fabrics go through a process which creates a natural textured finish that gives the fabric a distinctive crepe-like feel even after washing. This fabric is a little heavier that regular quilting weight cotton; more the weight of homespun type fabrics. Beautiful for sashiko!
