A Rustic Zokin: Striped Cotton Cloth
ca. mid twentieth century
8" x 13", 20.25 cm x 33 cm
Zokin are traditional Japanese dustrags which are almost always made from layered and sashiko stitched scraps of cloth.
This is a very handsome zokin which is sewn from recycled cotton cloth, probably about two or three layers. The cotton is a narrow stripe in neutral tones, with a top stitch of red thread which opposes the white cotton stitching of the body of the dust rag.
Hand stitched and appealing.
