A Length of Indigo Dyed Cotton Egasuri: Large-Scale Images

$85.00 USD

mid twentieth century
54 1/2" x 12 3/4", 138.5 cm x 32.5 cm

This length of egasuri--or image kasuri--shows four fairly large-scale weft-based woven images. They are all depicted as tone-on-tone, a pale blue image against a darker indigo background.

From top down: a hexagon or tortoiseshell with pine trees and kanji; a crane; a chrysanthemum sunset; a tortoise.

The images as depicted are charmingly rustic and each one occupies quite a good amount of space on the length.

Please do note a hole to the selvedge near the chrysanthemum sunset.

Charming.
