A Length of Patched Hemp Kaya: Well-Used

$45.00 USD

early twentieth century
61" x 13 1/2", 155 cm x 34.25 cm

This is a length of woven hemp kaya or mosquito netting: it is dyed a very warm blue-green color and it is very worn.

Faint stains, surface abrasion, a patch and a small hole all define the attributes which give this length character. None of these details detract from the rustic charm of the piece, which is great.

Instead, the faint staining adds some nice textural interest to the length and is not distract from its integrity as an old piece of hand woven hemp cloth.

A lovely textile from old Japan.
