100% cotton crepe by Kokka, Japan - 'Steteco Mood' Deep Mocha
$8.40 per quarter metre $33.60 per metre.
110cm wide, made in Japan. Fine and semi-sheer but quite a close weave, so more durable than a gauze-type cloth. Very drapey and soft, ideal for loose shirts and dresses, will take a gather very well. With its lightly rumpled texture, this one could probably get away without much ironing!
Thanks to this fabric, we discovered that 'steteco' is a traditional Japanese garment: loose shorts worn under kimono and hakama, or as loungewear.
