If you like blue, you'll like this 100% cotton dobby from Japan. Its background is a fairly dark blue. The flowers in ecru, cranberry, blue-green, aqua, and gold make it sparkle. The dobby cottons have a particular weave that incorporates thicker threads in both directions. So they are a bit heavier than cotton shirtings, they have an interesting surface texture, and they resist wrinkling. They wash well and require minimal ironing. We've made shirts that can layer as light jackets, shells, tops, jackets, tunics, and vests.
