What sort of Japanese fabrics do you carry?
The vast majority of our Japanese fabrics are kimono silk in the traditional width of between 35 and 37 centimetres but we also carry cottons (including indigo dyed). Almost all of our fabric is in very good or excellent condition. However, some fabric may contain stains/marks or small imperfections that need to be worked around. If this is the case, these stains/marks will be noted in the product description.
How much can I get of one particular fabric?
The absolute maximum fabric on an untouched roll is approximately 10-12 metres.
What is the smallest amount I can buy?
We generally sell our Japanese fabrics in multiples of 50 cm. So, our smallest length is 50 cm.
Sorry, due to the limited amount of fabric on each roll we do not supply samples.
How do I wash vintage Japanese silk?
You can have your silk items drycleaned however, contrary to belief silk is not difficult or scary to maintain.
Wash in cool to cold water with a splash of wool wash or pure soap flakes. Submerge fabric and give a gentle swish around leaving in the water for no more than 4-5 minutes.
Support when removing from the water – do not wring but gently squeeze before rinsing once again in cool water. Wet items can be rolled in a towel to remove excess water before being hung or laid out flat in shade. Iron when still damp with a dry iron if required (silk loves steam).
How can I pay?
We accept all major credit cards, debit cards and PayPal.
