A Pieced Zokin: Stitched Traditional Dust Rag
mid twentieth century
8 1/4" x 12 1/4" , 21 cm x 31 cm
Zokin are traditional Japanese dustrags which are almost always made from layered and sashiko stitched scraps of cloth.
This is a good-sized and very handsome zokin which is sewn from pieced-together recycled cotton cloth which has been beautifully sashiko stitched.
The stitching is beautifully executed. Just wonderful.
A very good looking zokin with a lovely composition and good color.
