A Length of Katazome Boro: Beautiful Blue and Two Patches

$70.00 USD

ca. early twentieth century
46" x 13 1/2", 117 cm x 34.25 cm 

What an attractive length of boro cotton.  

The base of this boro textile is of indigo dyed katazome cloth, the pattern shown on the cloth is a traditional and often-seen motif which was used primarily for bedding, that of large-scale peonies within a field of arabesque.

On the length there are two hand stitched patches, one of plain indigo and one of a kasuri cotton.  The cloth has been lightly starched.

It is a really pleasant-looking, boro textile, with good age, fine color and an artful placing of its patches.

Lovely.
