Natural indigo dye using traditional Japanese katazome stencil technique. Chrysanthemum floral design. The cotton is light and airy. Very pretty!

Hand woven fabric, hand dyed with stencil and brush. Flour and water was brushed on to create a resist dye pattern. It was then dipped a number of times in natural, botanical indigo to create this deep, rich blue.

The stencil is know as 'kata' in Japanese. Judging by the width, the kata used here appears to be Edo era. However, the cotton is newer: Taisho era, around WW1.

Highly collectable Japanese folk textile.

The listing is for 60cm x 33cm

As you can see in the photo, the last 10cm has been sewn onto the end. This piece was once part of a boro futon.
