2720B striped shima momen cotton green blue grey by the half metre


Shima Momen is a beautiful woven striped fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for sashiko (incorporate the stripe into your design), patchwork, bag making and other projects. Woven with thick and thin stripes, including a hint of mustard in the narrowest stripes. With five colours in the striped coloured warp and a black weft, it coordinates easily with many fabrics, and is perfect with Kofu Tsumugi fabric and my preprinted sashiko panels.The weave is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine or medium sashiko threads. Ideal for wearables, boro style patchwork, cushion borders, or sashing, borders and bindings for quilts - anywhere you want a top quality stripe.

  • Stitching Tip

    Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
