A Simple Indigo Cotton Fragment: Two Panels of Hand Spun Cotton
ca. late nineteenth, early twentieth century
38" x 26", 96.5 cm x 66 cm
This is a beautiful and simple hand spun, hand woven, indigo dyed cotton textile: the patched panels are hand stitched together and it seems this was once part of a jacket lining.
The beauty and artistic value of this textile is in its threads which are old and good; this would make wonderful raw material for a textile project or to be refashioned into something new to be given new life.
The center seam is undone from the bottom hem upward for about 6" or 15 cm.
