A Very Small Zabuton: Large Scale Kasuri
ca. mid twentieth century
12" x 8", 30.5 cm x 20 cm
This charming little thing is a small, hand made zabuton, or seating cushion.
The zabuton is made from a large-scale cotton kasuri cloth which is stuffed with cotton wadding. There are some repairs to the surface and the interior of the kasuri cotton, which add to its charm.
Certainly the zabuton has been worn hard and is repaired--as well, it shows the patina of wear, which is to be expected.
