A Length of Indigo Dyed Katazome Cotton: Chrysanthemum Variation

$70.00 USD

early twentieth century
63" x 13 1/4", 160 cm x 33.5 cm

This length of indigo dyed cotton was dyed in the stencil resist or katazome method.  

It shows a repeat pattern of crowded and beautifully stylized chrysanthemums, a traditional motif used for katazome dyed, specifically for bedding. The length was taken from a futon cover.

The hand woven cotton is of a good weight and the indigo color is nice and strong.  The pattern itself, too, is rich and vibrant, and the way the chrysanthemums are rendered is playful and graphically interesting.

A wonderful length of old katazome cloth and one with a vibrant pattern.
