Description

Festival kimono, mingei indigo cotton, hand dyed tsutsugaki fabric, Japanese country kimono, blue and white storks and turtles, family crest

#1035 Thin, very dark blue indigo cotton festival kimono.

On back: paste resist (tsutsugaki) dyed pines, bamboo, storks, and turtle, with some color. Large three-leaf family mon at top; pines wrapping around to the front.

Good condition; no rips, holes, or repairs, but a little color smudging. Some pattern misalignment on back. No inner liner. 56"w x 54"h. C.1910

Timeless mingei artistry and craftsmanship, an honored piece of old Japan history. A needed contrast for our modern world.

Tsutsugaki (tube-drawing) textiles are produced using a frosting tube type applicator to apply a rice paste resist before dyeing, which is washed away after. Tsutsugaki designs are typically large, bold, often colorful, representing auspicious traditional subjects, along with family and commercial mon, especially on futon covers and banners.
The technique dates back to the 7th century in Japan, and like all traditional dyeing techniques expanded greatly with the introduction of cotton cultivation from China in the 15th century. As with all forms of traditional crafts, only a few contemporary artisans continue to produce works today.

We do provide free domestic USPS Priority Mail shipping for this, and all fabric items! And we do accept returns, if necessary, for any reason (please see Policies).
