Big Bag of Donsu

Regular price $95.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Donsu  is a  damask weave that originated in China and has been used for centuries for tea ceremony bags, scroll backings etc.  Traditionally it would be silk  but most of the ones that come through the shop are silk blends, rayon etc.  Donsu are typically come in subtle, muted colours. I like the theory that these  traditional tones originated from weavers in Japan copying samples  from China which were already faded . This is a bag of oddments and remnants from quite small to up to about 70cm x 1m.  The texture varies from a soft rayon feel to some that are a little  papery. All in perfect condition.   Beautiful for bags, cushions or maybe the start of a really special quilt.  Probably mid-20th century.
