Travel Japan – More Shopping — Fabric Store

07 Jun

During my last trip, I found a three story fabric store.

I found it again this trip and got some sashiko thread in colors I still needed. I was enchanted by this fabric. It is sturdy and textured, yet soft.

And this border print felt so smooth, like a fine percale.

I noticed Hawaiian print fabric there. It was about $10. a yard, which is about the same as here in Hawaii for the better quality fabric.

Last time I was there I bought these patterns.

Even though they are in Japanese, I thought I could figure them out based on the diagrams.

Cotton yukata are so comfortable to wear. I bought this hand painted fabric here to make one.

They give me joy just looking at them. 😄

    These are beautiful fabrics you found! I love Japanese fabric. They feel so nice to the touch and the patterns and design on them are so different from the fabrics you can find in the US. If you ever need more, let me know! I know a wonderful fabric district in Tokyo where I can find almost any kind of fabric to send to you 🙂
