A Length of Complex Egasuri Cotton: Neat Squares

$85.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
58" x 13", 147.5 cm x 33 cm

This is a very handsome length of indigo dyed cotton weft-basedĀ egasuri or pictorial or figurativeĀ kasuri that shows a balanced, repeat pattern of two alternating images set into frames.

The "windows" are demarcated by stripes dyed a yellow color. Alternating we see a folding fan and symmetrical, geometric pattern with a Buddhist pearl inset in center.

More than likely this length of cloth was produced in Kurume, Kyushu, which was a major center of kasuri production of a particular type.

This length shows good, bright and deep indigo color with very little signs of wear with the exception of a small hole which is illustrated in the accompanying detail photos.

A beautiful length of hand woven kasuri cotton.
