A Beautifully Stitched Zokin: Undulating Lines
mid twentieth century
11 1/4" x 13 1/2" , 28.5 cm x 34 cm
Zokin are traditional Japanese dustrags which are almost always made from layered and sashiko stitched scraps of cloth.
This is a good-sized and very handsome zokin which is sewn from recycled cotton cloth which has been beautifully sashiko stitched in a network of crossing, slightly undulating diagonal lines.
The stitching is beautifully executed. Just wonderful.
A very good looking zokin with a lovely composition and good color.
