A Resist Dyed Cotton Sleeve: Family Crest

$25.00 USD

early twentieth century
44" x 13 1/4", 11.5 cm x 33.5 cm

This is a simple and beautiful fragment from an old kimono: it is the resist dyed sleeve of a cotton garment.

Obviously well-worn, the blue-green color of this thick cotton has faded and mottled from age.  Prominent on the sleeve is a resist dyed and hand detailed kamon or family crest, in this case it is the kashiwa or oak leaf symbol which also has faded over time.

A very good piece for quilters or those whose art involves textiles with character.

Just lovely.
