A Patched Large Zokin: Hemp Stitching
ca. early twentieth century
13 1/2" x 15", 33.5 cm x 38 cm
Please note this wonderful detail, one that we always look for in old Japanese rural textiles: the stitching done on this zokin uses hemp yarn, which adds a rustic element to the already beautifully unintended artfulness of this everyday cloth.Just wonderful.
