A Book of 9 Antique and Vintage Cotton Swatches #2: Indigo
early to mid twentieth century
each piece approximately 8 1/2" x 13", 21.5 cm x 33 cm
This is a beautiful selection of 9 good-sized vintage and antique cotton fragments, 2 of which are indigo dyed katazome. There are five pieces of indigo dyed cotton, each different. There is one swatch from an unused, unmade mid-to-late 20th century yukata or unlined cotton kimono and one swatch of small scale Nara kasuri.
Eight of the nine examples are hand woven and each is a beautiful example of Japanese folk textiles, ready to be used in any art, fashion or home design project.
A great group.
