This Just In: All New Japanese Cotton Prints (In-Store Second Floor)

April 14, 2017 by Britex Fabrics 2 comment(s)

japanese-indigo-printsThe dyeing techniques used in the production of Japanese cotton prints are of a wide variety: paste-resist (tsutsugaki), shaped-resist (shabori), and ikat (kasuri), as well as composite techniques that use 2 or more of these techniques together.

Other techniques include wax-resist (batik), stencil dyeing (katazome) and free-hand. Yuzen which was invented around 1700 is one of the most famous Japanese dyeing techniques. It is a combination of either freehand or stenciled paste-resist work and hand-application of dyes. These fabrics wash beautifully and the colors stay vibrant practically forever! A wide variety of these gorgeous Japanese cotton print fabrics are available in our store.

    I recently purchased 2 yards of the Japanese Fabric that has two lines of the Fish, one line heading upwards and the other heading downwards. It is beautiful. I realize now that I will need another yard of the same textured fabric in a complimentary style, and not able to get to the store! Could be in the same deep blue, or the salmon and crane?

    If you could you send me some samples online, I could tell you what I want and place the order ...

    I recommend that you email us at info@britexfabrics.com with a photo of the fabric that you bought, along with your request. We don't have a way of sending you samples online :)
