About ShugeiCraft

Sales 5,371
On Etsy since 2011

Welcome to Shugei Craft (手芸). We carry a carefully-curated selection of unique fabrics and craft supplies with a focus on brands from Japan.

Shugei (pronounced shoo-geh) is a Japanese word meaning handicraft. It is written in Japanese as 手芸, combining the character for hand (手) with the character for technique (芸). Shugei Craft combines my love of making, my passion for Japan and Japanese culture, and my compulsion to collect beautiful things.

Frequently asked questions
If I order more than 1/2 yard of fabric, is the yardage shipped as one piece?

Yes, all yardage is shipped in one continuous piece unless otherwise requested.

Do you provide free samples?

We usually only keep 1 bolt of a fabric in stock at a time, so we are unable to provide free samples. Thank you for your understanding.

Can I order less than 1/2 yard?

Orders of less than 1/2 yard are provided on a case by case basis depending on the situation, the fabric selected, and the amount of the fabric remaining in stock. Please contact us for more information.

Do you have a physical store in Brooklyn?

Not yet. ;-)

Is Temaricious thread made from organic cotton?

Temaricious thread is not made from organic cotton; however, it is hand-dyed using natural dyes.
