A Superbly Complex Length of Zanshi-ori: Kasuri Striped Yarns
reduced from $120.00
ca. late nineteenth, early twentieth century
58" x 13", 147.5 cm x 33 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 appeal is high.
Really lovely, and recommended.
