Kofu Tsumugi fabric is perfect for dressmaking and other projects like patchwork, quilting and bag making.


This 100% cotton fabric is yarn-dyed and woven with a black weft to produce a characterful, speckled appearance and slightly slubby texture which resembles traditional, hand-woven Japanese silk. It handles beautifully whether you are piecing patchwork, stitching sashiko or making clothing.


This is the same fabric as the Susan Briscoe panels are printed on, so it can be used as a border and backing. It can also be used alongside any other cotton fabrics, it is perfect for sashing or adding a touch of plain fabric to a quilt. You can also draw or transfer your own sashiko designs onto kofu tsumugi, which gives you lots of options for example making a sampler quilt.


Olympus fabrics will not bleed their colours during stitching or washing.  They are machine washable and  pre shrunk.
