A Length of Katazome Cotton: Faux Kasuri

$40.00 USD

mid twentieth century
30 1/2" x 13", 77.5 cm x 33 cm

This is a charming length of lightweight cotton that has been dyed in the katazome or stencil resist dyed process. 

The stencil dyed pattern shown here is interesting because it was meant to mimic kasuri, an ikat dyeing process. The repeat design is that of a simple double kasuri but rendered using stencils.

The length is composed of two pieces which are hand stitched together and although used and fairly old the color is still relatively bright and the condition is good.
