Meiji / Taisho era, 1900 - 1920 antique Japanese cotton.

A beautiful example of Japanese ai zome.

Solid, simple indigo. All natural dye.

Antique cotton, hand woven and hand dyed. It is quite sturdy, medium-light.

It was once part of a garment, there is a cut into one edge which would have been turned back to create a collar of a kimono or haori. The fabric has been patched together and repaired in a number of places. On the front the condition is good. The hand stitching is neat. On the back the hard work can be seen and there are a couple of discoloured areas.

The list price is for 119cm x 34cm

40cm of the full length is in great condition with no patches, stitching or discoloration.

The remaining 80cm has one rectangular patch on the back covering four small holes, a line of stitching where the panels have been sewn together 50cm from one end and a collar split 30cm cm from the other end.

If you would like a smaller piece let me know.

Please don't hesitate if you have any questions.
