From the 'Kawa' ('river'), a Japanese shibori (tie dye) inspired range by Debbie Maddy for Moda, this patchwork fabric is printed in squares to look like an intricate shibori indigo dyed fabric. Ideal for patchwork, plus lining or backing your sashiko projects.  It would make a stunning jacket lining.

NB - limited quantities, and I can't reorder this one!

For printed faux shibori, this is very realistic. The squares are approx. 6in, so there's lots of possibilities to use them as individual patchwork block centres, as a panel, or as a continuous 'faux patchwork' fabric - maybe for a jacket lining or similar. Genuine hand-tied shibori costs an arm and a leg nowadays, and this makes a very convincing substitute for your patchwork, dressmaking, boro, home dec and other projects. Patchwork weight cotton.

It is a panel, but the fabric is printed continuously so it works as yardage too. I am selling it in increments of 60cm, rather than a half metre, so the pattern doesn't get disrupted for anyone who does want to use it as a panel. Order more than one 60cm length, and I will be able to send it as a continuous piece.


110cm (43in) wide (approx).


100% cotton
