This fabric design is called ‘Ontayaki’ after the pottery and stoneware of the same name. Handprinted on 100% Linen this would be perfect for a shacket, trousers or a skirt. It would be a match made in heaven for homewares also.
The main feature of Ontayaki is that you can enjoy the dynamism of the patterns that emerge from the contrast between the clay and the glaze. This eye catching contrast and texture is captured in the textile through the hand drawn stoneware to layered colour in the handprinted dyes.
Ontayaki pottery is fired in a village in the mountains of Hita City, Oita Prefecture. The Ontayaki technique, which began about 300 years ago, has only been passed down and taught to family members for generations. In this manner it has been preserved to the present day.
Currently, 10 potteries continue to use these traditional techniques as they have been passed down. A true folk art.

· Because of the nature of the material, some shrinkage occurs with washing (allow for shrinkage of approximately 2%)
· Due to the nature of hand printing, there may be differences in colour, bleeding, alignment etc. There will also be a visible join mark where the design stencils begin and end – this is called the katakuchi and is integrated into the fabric design.
· Different fabric substrates will absorb the dye differently and may affect the crispness of the lines and the intensity of the colours.
