Vintage cotton tsumugi yukata fabric- black with brick red burgundy stripes - 52 inches (132 cm)

Sorry, this item has sold.

This listing is for one yard and 16 inches (52 inches or 132 cm) of fabric. The fabric is 14.25 inches (36.2 cm) wide. This is the only piece available and it is a continuous piece with no cuts. It does not have any stains or holes but there is one faded line on the fabric. Please read the description to learn about this flaw.

This beautiful, vintage, cotton fabric was once part of a kimono. Tsumugi cotton fabrics are perfect for creating scarves, quilts or pillow cases. This fabric can also be used for apparel but please remember that kimono fabric is not as wide as other fabrics.

This cotton fabric features a woven striped design in colors of brick red and off-white over a black background.

Typical of tsumugi, this fabric is highly textured and has slubbing. Tsumugi is created out of pre-dyed threads that are woven together to create the pattern on the fabric. The warp and weft threads are different colors (called shot fabric) giving the fabric a wonderful depth of color. Traditionally the weft threads of tsumugi are black. The weft threads of this fabric are black while the warp threads are red, white and an indigo blue color. This creates a fabric that has a great depth of color that changes in the light due to the different colored warp and weft threads. This cotton will have a more red or a deeper brick red color depending on the reflection of the light.

This fabric has a wonderful "slubbed" texture and a slightly stiff drape. It is of a medium weight.

**There is a faded line running across the fabric where the fabric was once folded. A photo of this area can be seen in the 9th picture. This line is about 12.5 inches (31.8 cm) from one end of the fabric. This faded area is only seen on one side of the fabric. Both sides of this fabric are identical therefore the fabric can be reversed if the faded portion is detrimental to the look of the finished project. **

The last photo shows the colors most accurately. Crayola brand crayons were place in the photo for color comparison.
