Two pounds of mixed fabric in a variety of colors, sizes and patterns based on what is currently in stock. Most are silk but there are likely to be synthetics included. Cottons are rarely included.
Remnant size ranges from 14"x30" to 6" x 18". If you prefer or can use smaller pieces (3"x8"), you'll get more variety, so let us know.
Typical bundle could include stencils, prints, yuzen, roketsuzome, flat, textured and open weaves, jacquards, solids, etc. - such a great variety it is too varied to list. We can sometimes include specialty pieces such as shibori, ikat, embroidery, brocades, etc., but cannot include furisode, boro, children's fabrics, or other higher value rare pieces in these bundles.
Patterning can include florals, geometrics, abstracts, and solids. Occasionally we do get traditional scenes such as huts and gardens, imagery such as fans and drums, and animals such as birds, butterflies and deer.
The fabric weight can vary from lighter linings good for scarves and pouch lining to heavier obi brocades suitable for book or pillow covers. Most are in between, suitable for clothing, art quilts, applique, etc.
These pieces are from slightly damaged kimono, haori, obi, and michiyuki, so there may be signs of age but each piece will be at least 90% usable.
We assemble each bundle individually with your preferences in mind. Give us your preferences for color, size, or patterning when you place the order and we'll do our best based on what's in stock.
This bundle is not ideal for artisans who have specific color or desing needs, but if you email us with what you need (cottons, silks only, limited color palette), we will let you know if we have enough of those types to put together a one pound bundle for the same price.
Great assortment. Sized well for many projects, and a wonderful selection of diverse patterns and colors. Thank you!

Working with Nancy to pick out fabric for my wedding outfit accessories was delightful. Everything that came in the bundle was beautiful and was within the parameters that I needed! Shipping was fast. I even ordered too much and Nancy let me know!
