Tatami Heri (Edging) Brocade, 1.5m Roll - WIDE Animal Friends
Tatami are the thick, traditional floor mats found in Japanese homes and temples. They are made from compressed straw, topped with smooth rush matting and the edges are finished beautifully with these 'heri' brocade ribbons.
The heri ribbons feature beautiful designs and are available here in 1.5m rolls. The fabric is quite stiff so gives a little structure to your items - you can use it to make bags, straps, belts and lots of other wonderful things! Give a touch of Japanese style to your creations and let your imagination run wild.
Many of the designs are double-sided (with the colours in reverse on the back) and I have tried to show this in the photographs. So your bags don't even need a lining! The edges are ready-hemmed, too. It looks fabulous to put several different heri together on one project and I can't wait to see what you make. The maker in Japan recommends using 2 rolls to make a small bag.
