Item Details and Description:

    • Fabric History/Pedigree:   Deadstock, unused (new but unsold stock) Asa (hemp/flax-based)  estimated from the 1930s to 1950s; Asa is flax or hemp-based Japanese fabric which was used for centuries in Japan; traditionally used for utilitarian purposes: work clothing, screen or coverings; this roll was for making some sort of garment (kimono, yukata, coats); Asa is stronger and ages better than cotton, but is still rough or stiffer than cotton even after long use; rarely made after the 1960s.

    • Fabric Description:  Lightweight asa is slightly translucent, slightly textured to the touch; probably made for summer uses; same on both sides, solid navy-blue with a touch of dark-green color throughout.

    • Colors: Please remember that colors & contrast shown may differ on different devices. Please note the colors listed in the text here.

    • Condition:  Excellent.
