A Large Zokin: Pieced Blues
ca. mid twentieth century
12" x 16 1/2", 30 cm x 42 cm
This zokin, or sashiko stitched dustrag, is sewn from layers of cotton cloth which are then sashiko stictched together.
What makes this zokin so interesting is that it is of a good size--larger than most-- and shows lovely tones of blue and a good arrangement of them.
This traditional dustrag shows a lot of visual appeal, both in terms of color and texture.
A lovely thing.
