A Length of Katazome Dyed Hemp or Ramie: Stylized Plum Blossoms

$30.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
31" x 13", 78.75 cm x 33 cm

This is a short length of indigo dyed katazome hemp or ramie cloth.

The pattern shown on the length is a complex one: it is composed of wider and narrower parallel, vertical stripes over which is super-imposed stylized plum blossoms rendered in a casual, brush-stroke fashion.

The image is a very nice one, probably dating from the 1940s or so, and the cloth shows a wide halo of a stain, not terribly noticeable but attempts to show it can be seen on the accompanying detail photographs here.

An unusual pattern with a contemporary spirit.
