Description:

Japanese cotton denim with a classic red selvedge. A classic slubby denim that would work well for nearly all our patterns.

Kojima is suitable for the following patterns in our Workbook: Strides and Haremere.

  • 114cm wide.
  • 11oz, 320gsm.
  • 100% cotton.
  • Contry of origin; Japan.
  • As all computer monitors show colours differently, we recommend ordering a sample of the cloth to check it is the right colour and weight for your project.
  • Thread match Gutermann Sew All 387.

Kojima has been used to make our Eve trousers and Harlene dungarees.

Washing Instructions

We recommend pre washing your cloth before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight cloth into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the cloth, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:

  • Wash your cloth on its own for the first wash.
  • Sink your cloth in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the cloth already wet.
  • If you can break up your fabric into half this will help.
  • For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with a low spin.
  • If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
  • Do not tumble dry.

When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.
