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.
