Antique Japanese Textile - Indigo & Kasuri

Regular price $190.00 $0.00

Product Description

This antique Japanese kasuri textile has been hand sourced in Kyoto, Japan.

Boro textiles are usually sewn from nineteenth and early twentieth century rags and patches of indigo dyed cotton. The diversity of boro textiles is due to the variety of hand-loomed cotton textiles which are patched by hand with sashiko thread. The composition of different patches and mended sections is not planned and therefor holds a beauty and authenticity.

Kasuri is a type of traditional Japanese folk textiles. They have been produced since the mid 18th century (also known as ikat). In order to create patterns yarn threads are meticulously tied to resist areas before being dyed in natural indigo.

Please note this textile has various worn areas - adding to its beauty. It is one length of fabric - allowing it to be used in multiple creative projects, or made into a wall hanging. The textile pictured has been pinned around the wooden dowel for hanging and photographing.
