Richly colored stripes of red-orange, olive, dark rust, medium and dark grey, light brown, and the background of creamy beige run lengthwise on this cotton dobby from Japan. Large flowers of bright dark red outlined in white and others in soft greys with olive leaves are scattered here and there. Smaller flowers in the same colors are also arranged in lengthwise rows. The overall impression is lively and bright. Because this light/midweight cotton is a dobby weave, it won't need much ironing. It is fairly crisp, which is typical of cottons. It's just right for shirts that can double as summer jackets, shells, tunics, dresses, structured vests, or easy-fitting pants.
