A Length of Resist Dyed Cotton Cloth: Grapes and Lattice
ca. early to mid twentieth century
70" x 13", 178 cm x 33 cm
What a refreshing pattern is stencil resist dyed onto this length of lightweight indigo dyed cotton: the pattern is that of grapes superimposed over a lattice motif, a very timely motif as we are nearing the grape harvest time.
This length of katazome cloth is softened from wear and is composed of two, separate pieces which were hand stitched together to form one piece. The color is a lovely medium blue and the surface of the cloth shows some wear. There is a small, match head sized hole, very hard to notice.
A happy length of indigo dyed katazome cotton; just lovely.
