A Two-Sided Reversible Length of Katazome Cotton: Patched and Not

$80.00 USD

early twentieth century
69" x 13", 175 cm x 33 cm

This is a really nice length of indigo dyed cotton katazome cloth whose reverse side is highlighted here.

The reverse side shows two beautifully placed katazome dyed patches: they are in subtle contrast to the base cloth, in this case, the pattern is faint because we are looking at the wrong side of the length.

The correct side is still beautiful and is shown in the accompanying detail photos: you will see stylized chrysanthemums against a background of arabesque. 

Each of the two sides of this cloth are beautiful so if you decide to acquire this length of old katazome, you will have to decided which you prefer.

Just lovely.
