Great Sources for Japanese Fabrics, not too expensive

I sew quite a bit and here are a two web sites with wonderful Japanese fabrics: The International Fabric Collection has a good reputation as a source for beautiful traditional patterns. They have quite a good selection of Chirimen cotton and rayon, Yukata, Itaya and a whole lot more: http://www.intfab.com/cgi-bin/cwp_category_listing.cgi?pid=&&cid=196&&aid=&&shopid=&&clog=&&cpass=&&cref=&&nest_expand=|0|&&nest_target=313 Report Depot has a more modern selection of Japanese fabrics, all are funny, campy and just beautifully printed: http://www.reprodepotfabrics.com/alljaim.html As Bronwyn points out one US "Fat Quarter" is enough for a furoshiki. Enjoy!
