A Length of Handsome Kasuri Cotton: Plaid and Image

$65.00 USD

early twentieth century
41" x 12 3/4", 104 cm x 32.5 cm

This is a beautiful length of egasuri or picture kasuri indigo dyed cotton: it shows a large-scale "melon flower" in between segments of large-scale plaid. This length was taken from a futon cover.

It is a wonderful combination both for its graphic boldness as well as for its fine execution.

The cotton seems hand spun and the length is certainly hand woven. There is one small mending patche on the back of the cloth, not unusual for cotton cloth of this age.

A very good piece of old kasuri.
