A Length of Katazome Dyed Cotton:
early twentieth century
36" x 13 1/4", 91.5 cm x 33.5 cm
This charming length of katazome or stencil resist dyed cloth shows a playful pattern of hollyhocks and chrysanthemums which are shooting out small tendrils of arabesques.
The pattern is bold and uncomplicated and the implied syncopation within the designed placement of the hollyhocks adds a lighthearted touch to this stencil resist length of indigo dyed cotton.
In good, used condition.
