White Cliffs Japanese Cotton Woven-24" pieceMarcy Tilton Fabrics
Cutting edge contemporary textile technology here, and I love the effect! White and black stripe shirting cotton has mechanically woven tucks which have a subtle overall geometric pattern, (see detail photos). Finest quality Japanese cotton with a smooth and silky hand. The tucks add both a bit of dimension/texture and a touch of crosswise stretch - (similar to the effect of stitching with a double needle). With a silky smooth appealing hand and the tucks create a soft, airy lightly crisp drape. The surprise with this fabric is that the mechanical tucks create a crosswise stretch with excellent recovery, so you could use as a stretch woven. We had a similar fabric last season and discovered that it makes great pants. The weight is right for a shirt, tunic, light jacket, skirt, dress or vest.
