$30.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
25 1/4" x 13", 64 cm x 33 cm

This is a length of indigo dyed cotton shibori that was produced in Arimatsu, one of the towns in Aichi prefecture that was a leading producer and innovator in the production of shibori. 

The pattern is wild, it shows great swoops of almost-parallel lines that form a large, optically delightful design. Quite inventive. 

The stitched pattern is dyed onto a length of commercially loomed, fairly lightweight cotton and is in good, used condition.

Wonderful to look at!
