early twentieth century
52 1/4" x 13 1/4", 135 cm x 33.5 cm

This is a length of hand woven cotton that shows columns of gradient stripes shown in grey, indigo/black and red colors.

The type of stripes as shown here are often seen in 19th century textiles and they might be an allusion to waterfalls: waterfalls, especially in ukiyo-e prints are similarly depicted.

A very handsome length of hand woven cotton, this length is in good, used condition and is woven with thick, cotton yarns.

A wonderful design that is beautifully realized.
