A Length of Large Scale Kasuri Cotton: Arrow Feathers and Well Covers
early to mid twentieth century
61" x 13 1/4", 155 cm x 34 cm
This is a beautifully graphic length of indigo dyed cotton kasuri that shows large-scale, traditional design images embedded into vertical stripes.
On the left hand side is the stylized image of the yabane or arrow feather; on the right hand side there is a repeat of the well cover pattern. Both these images are often seen on kasuri cotton because the images are well-suited to this technique of weaving.
The cloth itself is in good condition and it is hand woven.
A lovely length of indigo dyed cotton from old Japan.
