A Length of Plaid and Kasuri Cotton: Complex Design

$95.00 USD

late nineteenth, early twentieth century
67 1/2" x 13 1/4", 171.5 cm x 33.5 cm

This is a length of thickly woven kasuri cotton that is bold in its pattern and rich in its color and design.

The cloth is woven as plaid that shows white colored woven designs that appear in the center part of the length. The images are abstractions of forms found in nature. The honeycomb-like design is tortoiseshell, for example.

There are two areas of mending to the cloth which are shown in the detail photos here and overall, otherwise, the cloth is in good, used condition with very little evidence of surface abrasion or light fading.

This is a super handsome length of old kasuri cotton that bears a sophisticated design: quite elegant.
