A Drawstring Bag of Re-Purposed Indigo Toned Cotton: Kasuri Elements

$65.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
12" x 12" x 12", 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm

This is a drawstring bag that is completely hand stitched from re-purposed indigo toned cotton cloth. The cloth shows designs of warp-based stripes and kasuri or ikat which is in subtle contrast to the base cloth.

The bag is of a good size and was stitched from several pieces of the same cloth; the drawstring seems original to the bag.

The indigo dyed cotton has a bit of a stiff, crepe-y texture. The top, inside of the bag is reinforced with a shocking pink cotton and the loops which hold the drawstring are of a yellow colored twine making for a charming color combination.

This is a utilitarian bag and one with a handsome visual appeal--and seemingly never used.
