Does anyone know where I can find some? Nothing fancy, just a plain Bamboo or Reed pattern.

Thanks!

Josh

I've tried to find bamboo fabric too, but all you find is a few stalks and leaves, not the look of lashed bamboo.
However, I did find this bamboo stencil, if you want to work a little harder at it.

Now would someone please tell me why this fabric is named what it is?

Purple Jade - I've found the same thing...lots of floral patterns that incorporate bamboo, but that's about it. I've still got a few places to check, but it's looking like a compromise is likely.

Haole Cat, I work for a quilt shop and I think we might have something similar to what you're looking for. I'll go up into the shop, cut some fabric, scan it in and post it here for you to see. It's all 100% cotton.

Darnit all...the two bamboo fabrics we have are green, and they're quite small scale. I'll post them tomorrow, some customers kept me hopping 'till closing time.

I'll keep my eyes open for more!
