A Double Panel of Shibori Dyed Cotton: Stylized Parasols
mid twentieth century
56" x 25", 142.5 cm x 63.5 cm
This wonderful length of cotton shibori is hand stitched down its center and shows a repeat pattern of what appears to be abstracted parasols--very lovely.
In dyeing this piece the cotton was very heartily shaped and the abundance of set-in wrinkles attests to this: this piece was more than likely not dyed using natural indigo.
Still, this is a really charming piece of cotton shibori.
