Fabric History/Pedigree: 1950's-1980's, Found in large batch of liner and other fabrics in bolts and rolls. Some of these are from Arai-Hari (a Japanese specialist who deconstructs old kimonos and resells the fabrics or makes new items.), other bolts are deadstock unsold bolts of fabric.

Fabric Description: These red cottons were used mostly for kimono liners or the occasional under-kimono (nagajuban). They average 13-14 inches wide (33-36cm) and bolts are usually 7-12 yards (11m) long. One bolt weighs on average 12 ounces to one pound so we estimate that a three-pound lot would be 36 yards or more.

NOTE: we are selling by pound, so these yardage figures are approximations for your information; we do not guarantee a length of fabric, only weight.

Fabric Type: These are all Japanese-spun cotton and are mostly lightweight but tightly woven. 

Colors: All are standard basic classical red, sometimes vermillion may be included.

Condition:  Aged and perhaps musty but are all clean and  100% usable.

Notes: Recommended for use in replacing kimono liners, dyeing, crafts, sewing, and other sewing projects.
