Do you know the history of Japanese fabrics ?

We have since a long time considered Japanese fabrics to be a reflection of Japanese art and culture. Their qualities and aesthetics have conquered the world, and their wide range of inspiring designs continues to fascinate lovers of the country and its crafts.

The traditional weavings, the variety of prints such as Asanoha or Seigaiha, have long been a testament to the skills of the country's craftsmen. The kimono is a perfect example of the timeless beauty of these magnificent fabrics.

I love the material. The only negative comment is that it didn't measure two yards, but it did measure a bit more than one yard. I'm sure it was my way of measuring. All is well and I love it and might need more later. Thanks for everything.

This fabric is beautiful. The texture and colors are perfect. The shipper will need your phone number as it is coming from Japan. They contacted me and requested it, and the fabric was delivered a few days later via FedEx. Great experience all around.

Wow! The 5-Star rating is definitely not enough to assess this seller and its product. The quality of the fabric is absolutely stunning. The colors are vivid and the weaving of the fabric is perfectly uniform. It matches the description beautifully and it feels wonderful when handled. I have no idea how it shipped so fast… I will definitely order again from this seller. Thank you!
