A Length of Katazome Dyed Cotton: Large Scale Pattern

$80.00 USD

early twentieth century
56" x 12 1/4", 142 cm x 30.5 cm

This length of indigo dyed katazome cotton shows a playful pattern of large-scale paulownia and chrysanthemum flowers against a background of karakusa or arabesque.

The cloth is faded overall; the design is also detailed with some areas that are tinted with a dark dye, a faded black color, which make the pattern "pop."

The cotton could very well be hand loomed; there is a fairly prominent, faint stain to the piece, on the proper top of the length, shown very clearly in the accompanying detail photograph here.

A really charming, exuberant length of indigo dyed katazome cotton.
