A Length of Shibori Dyed Cotton: Looping Flowers

$30.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
26 1/2" x 13", 67 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 shows a design of blue-on-white stylized flowers--perhaps chrysanthemums--which are set against a background of very large scale arabesque.

The shibori is dyed onto a length of commercially loomed, fairly lightweight cotton and is in good, used condition.  One tiny spot of stain can be seen on the length and is pictured here.

Wonderful to look at!
