Loose brushstrokes of off-white and medium blue on a black background characterize this cotton dobby from Japan. The lines twist and turn, occasionally ending in a tassel-like shape. Some lines may depict hand-held fans. It's a dreamy print. The fabric itself is 100% cotton, just a bit heavier than cotton shirting. We really like this fabric for the surface texture and wrinkle resistance created by the thicker threads woven into the fabric. It washes beautifully and needs little ironing. It will make wonderful dresses, shirts that can double as light jackets, tops, shells, and vests. Perfect for layering in spring and fall.
