A Length of Indigo Dyed Kasuri: Stripes Two Ways

$55.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
48 1/2" x 13", 123 cm x 33 cm

This is a handsomely designed length of cotton kasuri that was dyed in a dark, almost-black dye and shows an elegant pattern of warp and weft-based light colored stripes and a field of groups of warp-based kasuri blips.

The length shows warp-based lines that are arranged in groups of three and are set against weft-based lines which are woven from one light colored thread.

The cloth is hand woven and bears a nice drape: there is one small hole to the piece and a beautiful, single patch.

A lovely subtle thing.
