A 35 x 50cm (13 3/4 x 19 5/8in) precut of Sakizome Momen plaid - a 100% cotton fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for sashiko, patchwork, bag making and other projects. It is made to look like old cloth, with subtle colours (the range is inspired by 'forests, herbs, flowers and earth' colours), and feels like a soft, handwoven cotton. #SC031 is a light taupe plaid fabric that seems to glow, perfect for taupe projects. 'Forests, herbs, flowers, earth colours' are the inspirations for these natural shades. Easy to stitch for sashiko, with a weight similar to Kofu Tsumugi yarn dyed cotton.

The weave is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine, medium or thick sashiko threads. Ideal for taupe projects, wearables, boro style patchwork, or any project where an antique look is desired. 


35 x 50cm (13 3/4 x 19 5/8in) - this size is similar to 50cm or half a metre of our narrow width Japanese fabrics.


100% cotton


Made in Japan by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.

NB - The 35 x 50cm (13 3/4 x 19 5/8in) precut size is smaller than a 'fat quarter' size (50cm x half bolt width). The fabric is cut and packed in Japan to this standard size. The code number in the title is the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. stock number for this precut. The pack labels refer to this number rather than the main shade number.

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