This is a vintage hemp or ramie woven zabuton cover, a zabuton being a traditional seating cushion.

The dyed kasuri asa cloth is a type called akaso which is woven in Oumi, Shiga prefecture and is distinctive for its kasuri woven, brown-on-natural coloration.

The zabuton cover has a slit in the back where filling can be inserted; the condition is good and used.

A lovely traditional and utilitarian item from Japan.
