A Patched Furoshiki: Resist Dyed Lightweight Cotton

$75.00 USD

mid twentieth century
30" x 26", 76 cm x 66 cm

This is a furoshiki or a traditional Japanese wrapping or carrying cloth. It is made of lightweight cotton that seems to have been commercially milled. The resist designs, shown here on the lower quarter of the lightweight cotton cloth seem to be hand-done.

It shows a lovely design of a plaid wedge with some charming, traditional designs peaking from behind. There are three mending patches hand stitched to the cloth.

The cloth of the furoshiki is so lightweight that if you would like you can use it as a scarf or fashion accessory: it drapes well and scrunches equally well.

An attractive, mended textile.
