Japanese taupe wovens! A 35 x 50cm (13 3/4 x 19 5/8in) precut of Sakizome Momen - a thicker cotton fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for bordering sashiko panels, for patchwork, bag making and other projects. #SC064 is yarn dyed, woven mini check has tiny, coordinating squares floating across the weave, which gives it a lovely retro feeling (threads are stranded across the back of the cloth). 'Forests, herbs, flowers, earth colours' are the inspirations for these natural shades, aka Japanese taupe fabrics.

This fabric is also available as a 5m bolt by special order, shade OL107A (please allow approx. working 10 days for delivery, as the bolt will be ordered for you from Japan). The price per metre is £20, and for whole bolt special orders, there is a discount of 10%. Please email me if you require a larger piece of this fabric.

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.
