Originally designed as Japanese Bunka Embroidery, select Matsuhato patterns are now available as Canvas Only Patterns. Use your left over Bunka yarns or Hand Embroidery Perle Cotton & Floss with the patterns shown here.
Canvas Only Patterns Include: Fabric stamped with the pattern, colour picture and diagram for reference, a thread list of suggested colours from popular thread makers (eg. DMC or Cosmo). Please see the item description for details. Threads are not included with canvas only patterns.
Please note, the original Matsuhato Bunka Yarn colours and fabrics are no longer being made and it is no longer possible to offer all Matsuhato patterns as Bunka kits. See our Matsuhato Bunka page for kit availability.
These designs are considered to be art embroidery and not utilitarian (pillows, clothing etc.)
Matsuhato Patternsare owned and produced by BunkaCraft.Our needlework fabrics work beautifully with both hand embroidery (Thread Painting) and Bunka. We use premium European fabrics in plain colours and we have updated and replaced the old Matsuhato heavy gold and silver fabric with our new Sparkle Cloth in pastel colours.
