I'm excited to receive these leftovers from Colleen Kimura's Tutuvi fashions in Hawaii. They are very sturdy cotton fabric which sometimes get too heavy as I grow the weaves larger, on the other hand it makes possible sculptural options.
Thanks to a large suitcase I come in at just under 50 lbs at the United Airline counter. Cheap way to schlep them from Hawaii to the midwest.
It is a lot of work to process but well worth it for their intense rich colors. I will wash and dry them to encourage shrinkage. Then tear them into one inch wide strips which are starched and ironed; ready for weaving and sewing.
