A Length of Komon Katazome Cotton: Tiny Hemp Leaf Pattern

$60.00 USD

early twentieth century
52" x 13 1/2", 132 cm x 34 cm

This length of jishiro katazome, or "blue-on-white" katazome shows beautiful, very small, all-over or komon repeat of a traditional Japanese design motif, that of the hemp leaf or asanoha as it is known there.

The pattern is so small that when this length is viewed from a distance the pattern is not able to be seen; the length forms an all over, faint hue of pale blue.

As is noted in the accompanying detail photo one area of the length is patched, a charming detail to the otherwise beautiful piece of stencil resist dyed cotton.

Gorgeous.
