100% Japanese Cotton - Poppy Parade

  • 147cm Wide
  • Approx 130gsm
  • Made in Japan

This Poppy Parade print is bold, but is still as ethereal to wear as the other Japanese cottons.  This has a lovely dobby jacquard effect, adding interesting dimension.  The black background makes for a unique addition to our Japanese Cotton Collection.    The white of this print isn't a crisp white: it's a little bit greyish.  The red is on the tomato side, but it's more interesting as there as small moments of yellow and pink dappled throughout the petals.  The small inclusions of pink 'cools' it down.  It's ingenious!  It is such a stunning print.  Think about loose tops/blouses/shirts or wrap tops. The fabric is light but can hold some shape so consider dresses such as wraps, tunics, and shirt dresses.  A full or wrap skirt would also be beautiful.  I can also envisage statement sleeves, and cool midi and maxi dresses.   

This cotton is perfect for staying cool in summer, but would be a beautiful shirt or blouse at any time of year.  You may want to line skirts, but if the skirt is full you should be fine.  For tops you may find that all you need are black undergarments or a cami.

Cloth Care:

While cotton can generally be machine washed and tumble dried without any problem, this is a lightweight and delicate fabric, so take more care of the cloth/garment, so hand wash or and use a short / delicate cycle and place inside a mesh washing bag.  Wash colours separately.   The finished garment will last longer and look better if it is shaken out when wet, and placed on a hanger to dry.  Tumble drying will shorten the life of the garment, and potentially damage the jacquard effect.  Do Not Tumble Dry.  To prevent fading, wash inside out and dry in the shade.   Cotton needs a warm to hot iron.  Conduct a spot test.  Cotton is dry cleanable.
