A Length of Faux Kasuri Katazome: Lovely Patina

$65.00 USD

early twentieth century
30 3/4" x 13 1/2", 78 cm x 34 cm

This wonderfully straightforward-looking length of white-patterned indigo dyed cloth is not so straightforward if given a second glance.

The length is patterned to look like kasuri or ikat woven cloth but in fact it is stencil resist dyed or katazome.

The faded and worn indigo blue tone of the cloth is effective in pairing with this pattern as it creates something nice to look at.

The double kasuri effect of the stencil resist dyeing is really charming--and the one, small mending patch to the top, right corner is a lovely, added touch.

In good, used condition and delightful to look at, this is a lovely length of old katazome dyed cotton with a rich patina from decades of wear.
