A Length of Green Colored Kaya: Hemp Mesh

$55.00 USD

early twentieth century
72" x 12 1/2", 182.5 cm x 31.75 cm

This is a wonderful length of rustic, over dyed indigo hemp cloth--in order to achieve this lovely green tone on this piece the cloth was dyed first in indigo and then again in a yellow dye. 

This is a panel from a kaya or mosquito netting, hence the loose, open weave of the cloth.

The color is a beautiful, deep, rich, mossy green; the bast fiber yarns are rustic and wiry and have taken the indigo dye in a slightly uneven fashion, which adds to the country appeal of this length.

A lovely length of old kaya with a very good, rough texture
