vintage yakata cottons

Each bolt is 14" wide and 12 yards long.

There is no good explanation for why I have been importing bolts of vintage yukata fabrics. Blue and white aren’t my colors. And I certainly don’t need 500 more yards of cotton in my life.

Yet I feel compelled to collect these 40- to 50-year old rolls of hand-printed cottons. Maybe it’s my life-long interest in Japan. And maybe it’s my love of quilting.


  1. The explanation is that these are so beautiful and irresistible!

  2. Or maybe it's because you have impeccable taste. They are sublime.
