Japanese Premium Woven Fabrics

Japan's textile traditions have contributed some of the most elegantly understated fabrics, many of which remain little known outside Japan.

Tsumugi - This 100% cotton alternative is the closest approximation to traditional tsumugi. Historically, tsumugi was created by weaving silk weft on cotton warp, dyeing the cloth, burying it for years until the cotton deteriorated, then re-weaving the mottled silk into a luxury fabric.

Dobby - A dobby loom can be programmed to weave texture into the surface of the fabric. Dobby fabrics can be plain or printed but, either way, the woven texture is perceivable by sight and touch.

Sakizome Momen - Generally, saikizome means yarn-dyed and momen indicates cotton. Together, however, sakizome momen describes yarn-dyed plaids that are usually in soft "natural" hues.

Azumino Momen - Azumino prefecture is the home of this disctint fabric. The cotton is woven and dyed, it is fed through rollers, creating a subtle, yet indelible, texture on the surface of the cloth.
