Japanese fabrics

FabricandArt.com offers a variety of fabrics imported from Japan. From traditional indigo and sashiko patterned fabrics to cotton chirimen fabrics, many that depict the natural world - mountains, clouds, rivers, the sea. Clouds represent elegance and high status. In Buddhism, clouds signify the paradise beyond earth and in Shintoism, the spirits of the dead. Mountains represent the unyielding, or unmoving. Water, or waves, signify power and resilience. Waves constantly ebb and flow and so symbolize great tactical ability.The social and commercial importance of textiles in Japanese culture instilled vigor and a greater range of artistic expression within higher and lower class people. With ties to religion, peasant life and in part as a reaction to a growingly complex urban culture, Japan's textile traditions evolved from commoner textile traditions that had been utilized for centuries. Away from the palace workshops where textiles were woven, embroidered and dyed the poorest citizens added to local traditions by adapting foreign techniques, creating patterns by adapting motifs from other lands and creating original designs. From traditional cherry blossoms to the beautiful peonies and chrysanthemum design fabrics, we have a wide selectionof only the best 100% cotton Japanese fabrics. You can choose from a variety of textures and styles. They can be used for quilting, home decorating, clothing and more. You can be assured that all of our fabrics are first quality. We select 100% cotton, or linen blend Japanese fabrics.
