A Length of Katazome Cotton: Long

$95.00 USD

late nineteenth century
61" x 12 1/2", 155 cm x 31.75

This is a delightfully designed and generously sized length of indigo dyed cotton which shows three different,  stylized chrysanthemums amid a field of arabesques.

There are ochre toned details on this length which gives the design depth and variety.

The cotton appears to be hand woven and the surface is very slightly scuffed and a bit faded due to its age and the hard wear it must have received.

The colors are still fairly strong and the design is buoyant and delightful. As stated there is some wear to the piece but that is to be expected.

A charming design and a lovely length of old katazome, this is wonderful for its lightheartedness.
