A Length of Kanoko Shibori: Fawn Dappling

$45.00 USD
early to mid twentieth century
49" x 12 1/2", 124.5 cm x 31 cm

This is an attractive length of indigo dyed shibori cotton, the cotton being dyed in the shibori technique referred to as kanoko or fawn dappling, referring, of course, to the spotted fur of a young deer. 

The pattern of small, elongate circles is regularly-spaced and simply designed. The dappling is pale blue against a very dark indigo ground.

Although of the simplest sort of shibori this is a very handsome example and a wonderful design on its own.

One small hole barely noticeable as it is the size of one of the white shibori dots.
