A Length of Asagi Hemp Kaya: Pale Blue Mosquito Netting
ca. early to mid twentieth century
79" x 15", 200.5 cm x 38 cm
This is a lovely length of rustic, hand plied hemp kaya or mosquito netting whose color is a faded, pale, very warm powder blue.
The fibers are wonderfully wiry and the lax weaving creates a mesh like effect; there is one vestigial patch that can be seen on this fine piece of old mosquito netting.
Simply beautiful in color and texture, this is a very good piece of old kaya.
