A Length of Indigo Dyed Katazome: Folding Fans and Tachibana

$90.00 USD

early twentieth century
34" x 13 1/2", 86 cm x 34 cm

This tight and crowded pattern in katazome dyed cotton is a beautiful one: it shows folding fans and mandarin oranges rendered in dots. They sit against a background of white arabesques.

There are judiciously placed orange colored highlights on the fan and the tachibana or orange which enhance the dazzling aspect of the design.

The fans are arranged in a charmingly free-form manner which conveys a light-hearted tone to this design.

A very attractive length of katazome cotton and one that is still quite bright and in good, used condition.
