A Super Intricate Striped Zanshi Panel: Wildly Warped

$95.00 USD

ca. late nineteenth century
58" x 12 3/4", 147.25 cm x 32.5 cm

Talk about complex and beautiful: this length of zanshi-ori, or cloth woven from leftover yarns, is simply stunning.

The warp yarns are richly variegated and are defined by two, wide stripes in a rich, black color.  The weft yarns are kasuri or ikat cotton yarns and show a regular, lovely pattern up the length of the cloth.

The warp yarns are blue, white, yellow, orange, black--and a kind of twisted black-and-white cotton yarn that gives off a staticky grey tone.

The overall condition of this length is good, and its visual appeal is extremely high.

Really lovely, and recommended.
