The Matsuhato kits shown here include numbered Bunka Yarn, colour picture and a stitch guide corresponding to the thread colours.
The original Matsuhato thread colours are no longer being made and it is only possible to offer a limited number of designs as Bunka Embroidery kits. If Bunka yarn colours become available in the future, we will increase our production, but this doesn't appear to be likely. As a result, we are now making a select collection of Matsuhato available as Embroidery Perle Cotton and Crewelwork kits ( see our Hand Embroidery Page ).
Most Matsuhato kits are now available as Canvas Only Patterns. For more information or to order Matsuhato Canvas Only Patterns, please see our Matsuhato Canvas Only Page, accessed through the menu button. Most Canvas Only Patterns include a list of DMC and / or Cosmo thread colours. We use premium European fabrics in plain colours and we have updated and replaced the metallic fabrics with our new Sparkle Cloth in pastel colours.
All of our designs are considered to be art embroidery and not utilitarian (pillows, clothing etc.)
Matsuhato Patternsare owned and produced by BunkaCraft.
